Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's remarks on British Prime Minister's statement on fighting cyber terrorism

Q: It is reported that British Prime Minister May has called for international regulation of the cyberspace so as to curb the spread of extremism and terrorism. What is your comment on that?

A: International terrorist organizations spread terrorism thoughts, raise fund, recruit followers, and plot terrorist acts with the Internet and social network as platform, posing grave threat to security of countries around the world. More and more countries have realized that fighting cyber terrorism is an important task of the international counter-terrorism campaign.China is a major Internet user, and victim of cyber terrorism. The Chinese side has been calling for international cooperation against cyber terrorism, and calling on the international community to strike cyber terrorism with a clear-cut attitude, strong determination and effective measures. Since 2014, we have held two seminars on cyber terrorism under the framework of Global Counter-terrorism Forum, driving forward international cooperation and capacity-building in the relevant field.The Chinese side has noted relevant statement by British Prime Minister May. We will conduct practical cooperation with the UK and other countries around the world in a step-by-step manner as a community of shared future, and with the UN as the center and platform, forge the maximum synergy in fighting cyber terrorism, and jointly create a peaceful, secure, open, cooperative and orderly cyberspace.
