China is ready to strengthen anti-terrorism exchanges and cooperation with Arab countries to establish a long-term security cooperation mechanism, according to the China's Arab Policy Paper issued on Wednesday.

"We support the efforts of Arab States in countering terrorism and support their counter-terrorism capacity building," the paper said.

In addition to establishing long-term security cooperation mechanism, the paper said China is ready to strengthen policy dialogue and intelligence information exchange, and carry out technical cooperation and personnel training to jointly address the threat of international and regional terrorism.

The Arab Policy Paper, the first of its kind issued by the Chinese government, illustrated China's position that counter-terrorism needs comprehensive measures to address both the symptoms and root causes, and counter-terrorism operations should comply with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and international norms, and respect sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of all countries.

In addition to the security field, the paper elaborated China's policies to strengthen China-Arab Cooperation in the political field, trade and investment, social development, culture and people-to-people exchanges.

One specific part of paper illustrated China's Arab policy, saying that China supports the Middle East peace process and the establishment of an independent state of Palestine with full sovereignty, based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. China supports the Arab League and its member states' efforts to this end.

"We adhere to political solution to regional hot spot issues," the paper said.

China supports the establishment of a nuclear weapon-free and WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction)-free zone in the Middle East, as well as positive efforts made by Arab states in strengthening unity, curbing the spread of extremist thoughts and fighting terrorism, according to the paper. Endi
