BEIJING - Chinese President Hu Jintao said Friday that China is ready to work with all relevant parties to push for new progress in international anti-terrorism cooperation.

Hu made the remark in a written interview with reporters from Kazakhstan and Russia on the eve of his upcoming visit to Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine from June 12 to 20.

Hu said, with the joint efforts of the international community, positive progresses have been made in international anti-terrorism efforts and terrorists activities encountered a serious blow.

"But at the same time, we should see that the international anti-terrorism situation is still severe, and some terrorist organizations are still active," said Hu, adding there is still a long way to go in the fight against terrorism.

"The international community should follow the guidance of the Charter of the United Nations and other recognized international laws and rules, strengthen cooperation and fight against terrorism together," said Hu.

He added that China is willing to, in light of the principles of equal cooperation and two-way mutual benefit, work with all relevant parties to push new advancement in international anti-terrorism cooperation, so as to safeguard regional and world peace and stability.

The complexity of the international situation is still prominent, featured by continuously emerging deep-seated impact of the global financial crisis, slow recovery of the world economy and unbalanced development.

While the international security situation remain generally stable, unstable factors are increasing, Hu said. The political instability and chaos in some West Asia and North Africa countries has brought complex and profound impact to the regional stability. Threats and challenges from global problems such as climate change, environmental deterioration, energy resources safety, severe epidemic diseases and major natural disasters are increasing.

Under the new situation, "We should work together to seek common development and make unremitting efforts to build a harmonious world of lasting peace and common prosperity," Hu said.
