Facing more hackers' attacks, China insists on calling for international cooperation to prevent hackers' attacks instead of blame the attacks on any country, an expert said in Beijing Saturday.

Recently, some foreign report said several western countries government or military computer system were attacked by hackers, said Wang Xinjun, researcher of Academy of Military Sciences.

"It's very strange and surprising that only one or two websites of attacks are from China among the thousands hackers' websites, some officials and media arbitrarily blame these attacks on China, " he said.

"In fact, hackers attacks on China's computer system have surged in recent years and China is facing more severe situation of information security than any western country," he said.

"But Chinese government never blames it on any other country and insists on calling for international cooperation to crack down on internet-wrecking crime," he said.

"The Chinese government has always adopted a serious attitudes to information security and regarded the internet-wrecking crimes as common challenges to non-traditional security of the whole world," he said, noting China has issued several laws and regulations to safeguard computer system security and strengthened its research on computer system security.

He said the most effective way to fight internet-wrecking crimes is to strengthen international cooperation.

"Countries concerned should abandon doubts and prejudice towards other country especially the cold war mentality, and establish mutual trust and reach consensus on cooperation," he said.

"Countries should strengthen exchanges of information on hackers' attacks and make it easier for other countries to track down on the hackers," he said, adding "exchanges of personnel and information are also necessary to improve effectiveness of fight against hackers."

The Guardian reported earlier this month that Chinese hackers, some believed to be from the People's Liberation Army, have been attacking the computer networks of British government departments.

The disclosures came after reports that the Chinese military had hacked into a Pentagon military computer network in June. The Financial Times said Tuesday that American officials called it the most successful cyber attack on the Pentagon.
