Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT BEI­JING—China and the United States on Wed­nes­day held a sec­ond di­a­logue on cy­ber­crime.

Guo Shengkun, State Coun­cilor and Min­is­ter of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity, lauded the progress made since the first di­a­logue in Wash­ing­ton last year.

Cy­ber­se­cu­rity co­op­er­a­tion is in the in­ter­ests of China, the United States and other coun­tries, Guo said, ad­vo­cat­ing the di­a­logue as the ma­jor mech­a­nism for co­op­er­a­tion.

Un­der Sec­re­tary of the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity Suzanne Spauld­ing and Bruce Swartz, Deputy As­sis­tant At­tor­ney Gen­eral and Coun­selor for In­ter­na­tional Af­fairs of the Depart­ment of Jus­tice, rep­re­sented Sec­re­tary Jeh John­son and At­tor­ney Gen­eral Loretta Lynch who could not at­tend the meet­ing fol­low­ing Sun­day’s events in Or­lando.

The United States and China have many com­mon in­ter­ests in cy­ber­se­cu­rity, and the U.S. gov­ern­ment be­lieves that the two sides can turn those dif­fer­ences to co­op­er­a­tion, said the of­fi­cials, and called for con­tin­ued ex­changes along with strength­ened hot­line con­tact, in­for­ma­tion shar­ing and co­op­er­a­tion on spe­cific cases.

The two sides ap­proved a plan for the hot­line and agreed to hold a third di­a­logue in Wash­ing­ton later this year. Meng Jianzhu, mem­ber of the Political Bureau of the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) and head of the Com­mis­sion for Political and Le­gal Af­fairs of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee met with U.S. del­e­ga­tion to the di­a­logue.
