China has vowed to target the roots and cut off all parties which are behind the Internet, cell phone-based pornography in the country.

Liu Yunshan, a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), called for greater anti-porn efforts to ensure a sensible cultural environment for the healthy growth of juveniles as well as improving promotion of socialist cultural and ethical progress.

While addressing a meeting on fighting pornography, Liu, also head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, stated that "we should ensure that Internet and mobile phone systems become a new platform which promotes advanced socialist culture and provides cultural services to the public."

Government departments were urged to strengthen supervision on pornography and strictly punish any violators. Internet and mobile telecommunication firms were also asked to improve their awareness, responsibility and self-discipline in this regard.

The meeting saw 131 institutions and 202 individuals awarded for their outstanding efforts in China's crackdown on porn.
