Growing int'l cooperation boosts China's anti-corruption drive

BEIJING, June 26 (Xinhua) -- China is eyeing closer cooperation with other countries to help counter cross-border corruption, as it prioritizes repatriating corrupt officials who have fled abroad.

During the Seventh China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue that concluded this week in Washington, the two sides agreed to enhance communication on anti-corruption work.

The two sides reaffirmed their G20 commitments on tackling foreign bribery, denial of safe haven and asset recovery. China is also considering joining the anti-corruption panel of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

As the country's war on graft expands to foreign battlefields, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has listed strengthening international cooperation, pursuing fugitives and recovering stolen assets as one of the seven major aspects of its anti-corruption campaign.

The inter-departmental "Sky Net" operation aimed at pursuing fugitives with economic offenses was launched in April. The police, procuratorates, diplomats and financial sectors are working together to haul in these rogues.

Cai Xia, a professor with the Party School of the CPC Central Committee, said international anti-corruption cooperation does not stop at capturing fugitives. Instead, China is focusing on "building a long-term mechanism for better judicial assistance with other countries."

The international community recognizes that corruption is a global issue, which cannot be addressed through one country's efforts.
