CAIRO, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- China and Egypt reaffirmed Thursday that they both oppose linking terrorism with specific nations, ethnic groups or religions.

In a joint document signed by their foreign ministers, the two nations stressed that they firmly oppose double standards in the fight against terrorism.

They added that they resolutely condemn and oppose terrorism no matter what form it takes and where it happens, and will jointly combat terrorism and extremism with maximum cooperation in information exchange, evidence collection, and arrest and repatriation of suspects.

China and Egypt also vowed to strengthen cooperation in capturing and punishing members of terrorist organizations in the two countries and stem the financial sources of terrorism.

Visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping and his counterpart, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, witnessed the signing of the document, a five-year outline on cementing the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries.
