A meeting has been held between Gwangju 2015 and security forces in South Korea in order to facilitate the safe operation of next year's Summer Universiade.
The main topics discussed included counter-terrorism measures, security and traffic control, fire safety support plans, venue facilities security, food and beverages control, immigration and customs support, and other cooperation matters.
Plans were also put in place to create a Safety Task Force centred on South Korea's national agencies.
This force is set to be launched in January 2015.
Using the recent Asian Games in Incheon, the meeting also looked to highlight procedures surrounding access control, facilities maintenance, security, maintaining of order at the competition venues and the Athletes' Village, where more than 10,000 athletes will be coming from more than 170 countries.
"As it will be an international event attended by more than 20,000 people from 170 countries, coming up with a seamless safety plan is very important, especially working together with the related national and local safety-related organisations," said Kim Yoon-suk, secretary general of Gwangju 2015.
"Although strict safety measures will be implemented and will be followed at all of the venues, each situation will still be dealt with flexibility."
