GROZNY -- The fight against global terrorism calls for in-depth cooperation at all levels as the nontraditional threat has shown the feature of localization, fragmentation and internetization, China's top security official Meng Jianzhu said Tuesday.
Meng, 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 CPC Central Committee, made remarks at the 7th International Security Conference of High Representatives.
The international community should put aside minor differences, and strengthen dialogue and consultation within the framework of the United Nations, in a bid to seek a common ground in the fight against terrorism, said Meng.
All countries should make pragmatic effort to establish an effective mechanism for the sharing of information and intelligence, while improving their anti-terrorism laws and relevant regulations, said Meng.
