BEIJING (Sputnik) — China has ratified agreements on legal assistance in criminal proceedings with 51 countries, head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of China's legislative body, the National People's Congress (NPC), Fu Ying said Friday.
"From an international point of view, China is currently drafting a law on legal aid in criminal proceedings with other countries. The NPC Standing Committee has already ratified bilateral agreements with 51 countries," Fu said.
She noted that China, as a party to the UN Convention against corruption, has been strengthening cooperation in this area with other countries which have signed the convention.
