Closer Collaboration Focus of Meeting Between INTERPOL Secretary General and Director-General of UN Office at Geneva

INTERPOL on July 20, 2011 released the following:

“GENEVA, Switzerland – Identifying ways for enhanced cooperation was the focus of discussions today between INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and the Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva and Personal Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General to the Conference on Disarmament, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.

In their first meeting since Mr Tokayev’s appointment in May this year, talks also covered areas where INTERPOL and the United Nations together with UN agencies already work closely together as outlined in a series of cooperation agreements.

Recent collaborations include the delivery of a joint INTERPOL and UNODC criminal intelligence analysis training course, designed to build capacity of police in East Africa to combat maritime piracy. In 2009, INTERPOL and the UN signed a partnership agreement which will see both organizations secure international commitment on setting the enhanced role of police in peacekeeping operations worldwide.”
