Georgia and Europol will be partners to fight cross-border crime and terrorism.

Georgian Interior Minister Giorgi Mgebrishvili and Europol's Director Rob Wainwright signed an Agreement on Operational and Strategic Cooperation to expand cooperation to combat serious and organised cross-border criminal activities.

As a response to urgent problems arising from international organised crime and terrorism, the agreement allows for the exchange of information, including the personal data of suspected criminals, and the joint planning of operational activities.

The agreement relates to all areas of crime within Europol’s mandate.

Georgia will designate a national contact point to communicate between Europol and the competent authorities of Georgia.

Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili attended the signing of the important document.
