Media from China and the League of Arab States were encouraged to be offered greater cooperation and exchanges against the backdrop of global terrorism during a media dialogue in Cairo on Monday.

The dialogue, presided over by Jiang Jianguo, minister of the State Council Information Office, was held two days ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's State visit to Egypt from Jan 20 to 22.

Representatives of 13 Chinese and 12 Arab media outlets participated.

"There have been complicated changes in the global anti-terrorism situation. Chinese and Arab media should fight any kinds of terrorism hand in hand to protect human civilization, world peace and safety," Jiang said.

Nassima Cheriet, head of media production and international cooperation section, League of Arab States, said the dialogue had brought media of China and Arab countries to a new era and offered opportunities for both sides to "know more about each other and be closer".

"Because of terrorism and regional wars, we face a critical time as the humanitarian crisis worsens. It's in our common interest to cooperate with each other," she said.

She said she is expecting to establish a special Internet office as a platform to share information between China and Arab countries as the two sides carry out a global plan from 2016 to 2018.
