ICAO And INTERPOL Renewing Counter-Terrorism Cooperation


ICAO and INTERPOL are renewing their cooperation on preventing travel by foreign terrorist fighters following the recent bilateral meeting between the two international organizations' Secretaries General, Dr. Fang Liu and Mr. Jürgen Stock, respectively.

During her visit to Lyon, France, Dr. Liu also met with INTERPOL's President, Mr. Meng Hongwei, and its Director (Operational Support and Analysis) Mr. Mick O'Connell. She also had an opportunity to review INTERPOL's border database operations.

The initiative will result in an update of ICAO's MoU with INTERPOL and the establishment of a roadmap strengthening cooperation between both Organizations.

Dr. Liu was accompanied in Lyon by ICAO's Regional Director for Europe and the North Atlantic, Mr. Luis Fonseca de Almeida, and Deputy Director for Aviation Security and Facilitation, Mr. Sylvain Lefoyer.
