BEIJING, Feb. 23 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's police chief held talks with his Chinese counterparts in Beijing on Tuesday to discuss ways to bolster cooperation on cybercrime, repatriation of fugitives and anti-terrorism, officials said.

Kang Sin-myeong, Commissioner-General of the National Police Agency, arrived in Beijing earlier in the day on the final leg of his two-nation tour that included the United Arab Emirates.

Kang and his Chinese counterparts also discussed plans to form a three-way public safety consultative body with Japan, officials said.

The plan was proposed at a trilateral summit of leaders of South Korea, Japan and China in November last year.

South Korea and China signed a treaty for the repatriation of fugitives in 2002.

Last year, 38 South Korean criminal suspects who fled to China were returned home, while South Korea repatriated 10 Chinese fugitives.
