Meng Jianzhu, the Chinese State Councilor and Public Security Minister, has recommended several ways, including improved dialogue, for countries to improve their international security cooperation.

Meng, speaking Tuesday at a high-level international security conference here, expounded on the firm positions and measures China has adopted in tackling such global challenges as terrorism and transborder crimes.

He urged the conference participants from more than 40 countries to enhance their strategic trust and actively engage in international security cooperation for the sake of global stability and prosperity.

The suggestions Meng offered included reinforcing strategic dialogue via bilateral and multilateral channels and coordinating policies on anti-terrorism efforts.

Meng also called for the establishment of a global monitoring and early-warning mechanism. He said he believed it necessary for countries to cooperate on intelligence exchanges, investigations, and security at major events.

Participants at the two-day forum discussed, among other things, challenges to sustainable development posed by natural and technical disasters, and the interrelations between transborder crimes such as terrorism, drug trafficking and illegal arms dealing.

The participants all voiced willingness to reinforce global security cooperation to face new challenges and threats and reached consensus on enhancing dialogue and cooperation between law enforcement agencies.
