China and South Korea partner against cross-border gambling

Wang Xiaohong, China’s Minister of Public Security, has stated that his country is willing to work with South Korea on a number of anti-crime projects, with a special emphasis on preventing what China refers to as “cross-border gambling” by its residents.

This declaration was made during a meeting with Yoon Hee-keun, the Commissioner General of South Korea’s National Police Agency, in Beijing.

Wang and Yoon talked about financial crime, drug trafficking, internet fraud, and international gambling in addition to other illegal activities. The delegate from South Korea reaffirmed their readiness to work with China on these law enforcement initiatives.

China is concerned about cross-border gambling because its nationals are breaking Chinese law when they travel overseas to bet online or visit casinos. Over the past few years, numerous Chinese government departments have stepped up their crackdowns on these kinds of operations in response. China has established bilateral agreements with other nations, particularly South Korea, for improved enforcement against these crimes because it considers these activities to be serious legal transgressions.

Additionally, in the past year, advisory warnings have been sent by China’s consulate general on the semi-autonomous island of Jeju and embassy in Seoul cautioning Chinese nationals against engaging in gambling activities while in South Korea. China is still on the lookout for ways to stop its residents from gambling, even though South Korea has a thriving legal casino market with all but one casino (Kangwon Land) open only to foreigners.
