Issues of common interest such as combatting organised crime and terrorism, were discussed during a meeting in Nicosia between Cyprus’ Justice Minister, Stephie Dracos, and as Executive Director of Europol, Catherine De Bolle.

According to a press release by the Justice Ministry, as part of a formal visit by the Executive Director of EUROPOL to Cyprus, a meeting was held with the Minister of Justice and Public Order, in the presence of the Chief of Police.

At the meeting, it said, issues of common interest were discussed regarding the cooperation between EUROPOL and the Cyprus Police “covering a wide range of dealing with organised crime and terrorism.”

The common approach to dealing with the challenges arising due to the immigration problem was reaffirmed, through the promoted framework of cooperation with EUROPOL, which has been continuously upgraded in recent years, it adds.
