BEIJING, June 19 (Xinhua) -- China's Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu has vowed to "strengthen cross-Strait and international cooperation" on the crackdown of transnational telecommunications fraud.

Meng, also a state councilor, made the statement at a forum attended by Chinese police who had busted a telecom-based swindling case in March.

According to the Ministry of Public Security, a total of 598 suspects in the case, including 186 mainlanders, 410 Taiwan residents, one Cambodian and one Vietnamese, have been arrested by the police from across the Taiwan Strait.

Meng said the uncovering of the case showed "innovative efforts of cross-Strait police cooperation" and a "breakthrough" for the Chinese police in conducting international law enforcement cooperation, as the case was uncovered with the help of police forces from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

He said efforts should be made to improve coordination mechanism of different police departments, strengthen international police cooperation and enhance the capability of precise crackdown of crimes.

Telecom-based swindling is a new type of crime in which suspects cheat people through telecommunications facilities including computers and cellphones. Many innocent people have fallen victim in the hands of this kind of crimes.
