  Chinese President Jiang Zemin and the U.S. President George W. Bush Wednesday night exchanged  views over the phone on terrorist attacks in some parts of New  York and Washington D.C. as arranged earlier.
  Bush thanked Jiang for his message of sympathy and condolences  over the terrorist attacks that took place in the United States.
  Bush said that international terrorism is a shared threat to  world peace, and he looked forward to working together with  President Jiang and other leaders of the international community  to strengthen cooperation in cracking down on international  terrorism.  
  The U.S. President hoped that his country and China would  strengthen cooperation within the Security Council of the United  Nations in this regard.
  Jiang said that the attacks have not only brought about a  disaster to the U.S. people, but also a challenge to the world  people who cherish a sincere desire for peace. The Chinese people, like the Americans, strongly condemn the shocking terrorist  activities.
  Jiang once again expressed deep sympathy for the U.S.  government, people and family members of the victims, and  heartfelt condolences to the deceased, on behalf of the Chinese  government and people.
  He said that China is deeply concerned about the progress of  the rescue work, and is ready to offer all necessary assistance.
  He voiced his belief that under the leadership of President  Bush, the U.S. people would overcome the current difficulties,  well handle the remaining problems and resume the social and life  order as soon as possible.
  He said that China is ready to strengthen dialogue and  cooperation with the U.S. and the international community in  combating all manner of terrorist violence.
  Jiang also hoped that the foreign ministers and the permanent  missions to the United Nations of the two countries would  strengthen consultation and cooperation in this regard.
