Kathmandu, September 23 Inspector General of Police Prakash Aryal today left for China to attend the 86th general assembly of the International Police Organisation, commonly known as Interpol, to be held in Beijing from September 26.

Over 800 delegates representing diverse law enforcement agencies of 90 member countries will be participating in the meeting to address a range of global security issues. According to Nepal Police, counter-terrorism measures will be one of the main agenda of discussion during the general assembly. Ensuring real-time data is in the hands of frontline officers and increased cooperation across various agencies in combating terrorism, organised crime and cyber crime are key topics during the four-day meeting, it informed. IGP Aryal is accompanied by AIG Bam Bahadur Bhandari and SP Kiran Bajracharya. The general assembly is composed of delegates appointed by the governments of member countries. As Interpol’s supreme governing body, it meets once every year and takes all the major decisions affecting general policy, the resources needed for international cooperation, working methods, finances and programmes of activities. It also elects the organisation’s executive committee. The delegates of the member countries will share information on strategic tools and techniques in relation to combating international crimes, besides expressing commitment to ending terrorism and crime through mutual cooperation, said Nepal Police. Being the world’s largest international police organisation, Interpol has a vision of connecting police for a safer world, and preventing and fighting crime through enhanced cooperation. Interpol’s General Secretariat is located in Lyon, France, and operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each of its member countries maintains a National Central Bureau staffed by its own highly trained law enforcement officials. IGP Aryal is the chief of NCB-Nepal.
