Interpol Assists with Airport Security ahead of Summit

6 May 2014

The international police cooperation agency Interpol will assist Burma with its efforts to tighten airport security ahead on next week’s Asean Summit in Naypyidaw, reports Xinhua. An Interpol team of officers from South Korea, Canada and Slovenia will help Burmese immigration officers to screen people entering the country through Yangon International Airport as part of Burma’s counter-terrorism measures, the report said. During his first official visit to Myanmar in January 2013, Interpol secretary general Ronald K Noble pledged to enhance security cooperation with Burma’s law enforcement authorities by connecting airports and border crossings to Interpol’s passport-screening system.
