|China to host judicial meeting on terrorism
Wan Exiang, vice president of the Supreme People's Court, said senior judges from member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) will discuss legal issues relating to the fight against the so-called three forces, cross-border crimes and extradition.
Led by China and Russia, the SCO also includes Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
"We are all facing a series of traditional and non-traditional challenges and threats, and judiciary cooperation is one important way of tackling these threats," he said.
Mr Wan said China has already signed several agreements with member states on the extradition of criminal suspects.
The September summit will focus on judicial fairness and cooperation.
