BEIJING -- Senior Chinese and US officials met in Beijing on Thursday to prepare for the launch of a high-level joint dialogue mechanism to fight cybercrime, hoping to take a further step on cyber cooperation.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, led representatives from Homeland Security, the State Department, Department of Justice, National Security Council and the FBI. They will visit China from Wednesday to Friday.

The US delegation held talks with Vice Minister of Public Security Chen Zhimin and other Chinese counterparts, exchanging views on preparing for the high-level joint dialogue mechanism to combat cybercrime, a consensus reached between the two countries during President Xi Jinping' s state visit to the US in September.

China's Public Security Minister Guo Shengkun also met with the delegation, reiterating the Chinese government's firm stance on fighting cybercrime and maintaining cyber security.

Guo called on both sides to accommodate each other's concerns and deepen law enforcement in cyber security to inject new impetus to establishing a joint high-level cyber security dialogue mechanism.

Mayorkas said the US is ready to strengthen dialogue and cooperation with China in cyber security law enforcement to promote the development of bilateral ties.
