Russian prosecutor general announces drafting of environmental cooperation agreement with Mongolia, China

BEIJING. July 13 (Interfax) - The Russian Prosecutor General's Office has drafted a trilateral agreement with Mongolia and China on cooperation in environmental protection and environmental safety, Russian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov said in Beijing.

Krasnov met with Chen Wenqing, secretary of the Chinese Communist Party's Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, on Thursday in the course of his first working visit to China.

"When you met with Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, you noted the need to boost the Russian-Chinese dialogue against the backdrop of the growing Western influence on our inner neighbor, Mongolia, and to step up contacts in the trilateral format involving Mongolia. I would like to inform you that my agency has begun such work within the limits of its jurisdiction," Krasnov said.

Russia has submitted a draft trilateral agreement on cooperation in environmental protection and environmental safety to the Mongolian Prosecutor General's Office, he said.

"If you are interested, I am ready to join the trilateral format of interaction between Russia, China and Mongolia in other fields of the provision of public security," Krasnov said.

The Russian Prosecutor General's Office attributes a great significance to the joint work done in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), he said.
