Recently, Mr. Wang Xiaohong, Executive Vice Minister of Ministry of Public Security(MPS) held a video conference with General Guillermo Lorenzo Tolentino Eleazar, Chief of the Philippine National Police(PNP).

The two sides reached consensus on further deepening mutual trust and cooperation, jointly cracking down on cross-border gambling, telecom and internet fraud, kidnapping, robbery, homicide and other illegal and criminal activities through regular meetings, and further enhancing technical cooperation in drug control, counter-terrorism and law enforcement capacity building.  

The Chinese side pointed out that gambling not only damages the normal financial order and economic security of a country, but also causes vicious crimes such as kidnapping, illegal detention, robbery, drug trafficking and other illegal activities, which seriously endanger legitimate property and personal rights. 

The Chinese side stressed that China strongly opposes all forms of gambling, and prohibits all Chinese nationals from participating in gambling operations, investing in gambling by Chinese entities or individuals, and all Chinese nationals from gambling and that the Chinese Government had once again reminded Chinese nationals in the Philippines not to engage in gambling activities.

The two sides also expressed their concerns that there have been a increasing number of kidnapping cases against Chinese nationals recently in the Philippines. At present, MPS and PNP are strengthening mutual cooperation in clues investigation, information sharing and case transfer, so as to strengthen joint efforts to crack down on such crimes.
