  Croatia and China signed here on Tuesday an agreement enabling Chinese police officers to come and assist Croatian colleagues during tourist seasons, as part of the "Safe Tourist Season" project that has been underway in Croatia for 12 years and involves 17 countries.

  Addressing the agreement signed by Croatian Police Director Nikola Milina and visiting Chinese Deputy Public Security Minister Li Wei, Croatian Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said that China is the first non-European country to join Croatia's "Safe Tourist Season" project, and that it was a step forward in the two countries' security cooperation.

  He also noted that the number of Chinese visitors in Croatia this year was 60 percent higher than in 2016, when a record-breaking 100,000 Chinese tourists visited the country.

  According to the Chinese Embassy in Croatia, crime against Chinese tourists in this southeastern European country is also on the rise, with 30 cases reported so far this year.
