MOSCOW, May 25 (Xinhua) -- China expects the international community to enhance cooperation on law enforcement and security management to better fight terrorism, top Chinese security official said on Wednesday.
Meng Jianzhu, head of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, stressed the importance of anti-terrorism cooperation at a senior representative conference on international security affairs held in Zavidovo, Russia.
Representatives from 95 countries and international organizations attended the conference.
Against the backdrop of increasingly complex and grim situation of fighting international terrorism, it can be drawn from past experience that strengthening joint work of the international community on law enforcement and security management is an essential and effective way to cope with terrorism, Meng said when delivering a keynote speech at the conference.
Unswervingly opposed to all forms of terrorism, the Chinese government has been dedicated to pushing forward international cooperation in this field, he said.
Meanwhile, Meng warned that when new challenges are emerging in the era of information revolution, cyber terrorism is posing severe threats to the world security.
In this context, China is willing to contribute, on the basis of mutual respect and consultation on a equal footing, to building an international cooperation mechanism for preventing and combating cyber terrorism, as a way to facilitate dialogue, information sharing and case investigation, in an attempt to maintain cyber security, especially the security of information infrastructure, Meng said.
During the conference, Meng also met with heads of national delegations of other members of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, as well as security chiefs of more than 10 countries. They have reached a broad consensus on anti-terror and security cooperation following in-depth exchange of views.
