Japan and China held their first antiterrorism dialogue Thursday in Beijing and agreed to beef up cooperation to counter regional and international threats, the Foreign Ministry said.

Delegates headed by Takaaki Kojima, Japanese ambassador in charge of international counterterrorism cooperation, and Luo Zhaohui, the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s director general of the department of external security affairs, shared the view that terrorism remains a grave threat to the global community.

Kojima and Luo exchanged views on international cooperation in such areas as supporting the antiterrorism efforts of developing countries.

They also agreed that Tokyo and Beijing will promote moves to lead talks on combating terrorism at multilateral settings including the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.
