For the 16th time, ASEAN Senior Officials discussed transnational crime with the EU, in the margins of the 5th Senior Officials Meeting on Transnational Crime (SOMTC). It was a useful opportunity to brief the ASEAN SOMTC on some of the measures the EU has taken internally and externally as part of the overall counter-terrorism strategy, following recent attacks in Europe and beyond, explaining also the progress made with the EU-ASEAN Migration and Border Management Programme II, implemented by INTERPOL. Senior Officials underlined the need for a global partnership to counter a globally connected terrorist network.
