China hopes members of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) will promote cooperation in fight against corruption, Chinese Deputy Supervision Minister Huang Shuxian said Saturday in Santiago.
Huang's words came in a speech at an APEC anti-corruption meeting which started Saturday in the Chilean capital.
He said China stands for seeking a common action guideline within the APEC framework for anti-corruption campaign, and hopes the guideline will be taken as a starting point for strengthening cooperation among APEC members in combating corruption.
Huang said anti-corruption cooperation should be carried out on the basis of equality and mutual benefits with respect for each member's sovereignty.
Different conditions of the countries should be acknowledged and the cooperation should be gradually pushed forward with the focus on practical results, he added.
