Heads of the Russian and Iranian law enforcement departments have signed a cooperation agreement, a representative of the Russian Interior Ministry told Interfax.
"The Interior Ministries of Russia and the Islamic Republic of Iran signed a "legal union" accord during the working visit of Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev to Iran. This is the first agreement that defines forms and methods of anti-crime cooperation," he said.
The ministers mapped out ways to broaden cooperation in the provision of law and order and border protection and discussed regional police problems, the source said.
"Police forces of the two countries cooperate in various spheres, among them suppression of drugs, trafficking in human beings, terrorism, new threats and challenges," the representative of the Russian Interior Ministry said.
