BEIJING — A summary of outcomes of the second China-US high-level dialogue on cybercrime was released on June 15, with the two nations scheduling various events for further cooperation in this regard.

The dialogue was held on June 14 in Beijing and co-chaired by senior officials from China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) and US Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice.

The two sides decided to meet for the third dialogue in Washington in the latter half of this year, according to the summary released by the MPS.

Before the third dialogue, the two will carry out the second tabletop exercise on cybercrime and network protection scenarios, as the first exercise in April was deemed effective.

The hotline mechanism will be tested before September.

The two will strengthen information sharing, including a regular sharing of online threats, and cooperation.

They will conduct cooperation in four aspects including joint crackdown on online child pornography, as well as joint crackdown on assistance to violence and terrorist activities, fraud via e-mail and websites and online sales of guns.

The two sides will meet at a symposium this year in China to discuss joint crackdown on the improper use of technology and communications that facilitate violence and terrorist activities. They will also work out an action plan to cope with e-mail fraud.
