The meeting focused on the development of new ideas for future joint actions which will make use of the complementary strengths of both organizations.

This will include a new analysis project at Europol, in which INTERPOL has agreed to participate.

I am confident that our organizations will become even stronger partners in the joint fight against serious crime and terrorism.
