U.S. - China Counterterrorism Dialogue

U.S. - China Counterterrorism Dialogue

July 16, 2014

The United States hosted the U.S.-China Counterterrorism Dialogue July 15 in Washington, D.C. Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights Sarah Sewall delivered the opening remarks and Ambassador Tina Kaidanow, Coordinator for Counterterrorism, led the U.S. delegation. Vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping from the PRC Ministry of Foreign Affairs led the Chinese delegation. The two sides reaffirmed their commitment to address the shared threat that terrorism poses to both countries and the international community.

Ambassador Kaidanow and Vice Foreign Minister Cheng noted the success of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue held in Beijing July 9-10 for setting the tone for cooperative bilateral relations, in which counterterrorism cooperation plays an important part.

During the dialogue, the two sides noted their opposition to terrorism in all forms and agreed on the importance of promoting peace and prosperity in regions around the world. Both sides sought practical ways to strengthen cooperation on counterterrorism and agreed to meet again next year.
