As a member of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), China is taking concrete steps to support the organization's goal of fighting terrorism and cross border crimes by recommending appropriate candidates, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said during Wednesday's press briefing in response to the concerns over China's nominee to the Interpol Executive Committee.

Interpol is a professional organization specializing in cracking down on cross border crimes, which should be free from the disruption of politics and other factors, Zhao said.

The organization will hold a meeting in Istanbul next week to decide on its new 13-member executive committee. It is reported that Hu Binchen, a Deputy Director-General of China's Ministry of Public Security will be the country's nominee. 

The Chinese police has maintained practical and friendly cooperative relations with Interpol and law enforcement departments of its members for a long time and works in line with international laws and related Interpol regulations, Zhao noted.

China will continue to make a contribution in supporting the organization to play its role as a multilateral police cooperation platform following its Constitution and regulations.
