China have ceased, but exchanges of information on crime still continue, the island’s top police chief said Friday.

Despite the existence of a bilateral judicial cooperation agreement, relations between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits have been frosty due to China’s opposition to the government of President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), who came to power last year after landslide victories in presidential and legislative elections.

At the higher echelons of the police hierarchy, interaction between Chinese and Taiwanese officers has all but stopped, National Police Agency (警政署) Director-General Chen Kuo-en (陳國恩) told a Taiwan media interview Friday.
