China and the United States will enhance their cooperation in combating wildlife traffickers by strengthening law enforcement and increasing public awareness, leaders of the two nations said at the China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue on Wednesday in Beijing.

Vice-Premier Liu Yandong said during the forum that it is a common aspiration of the international community to protect wildlife.

In recent years, the body parts of wild animals have become the world's third-largest commodity for smuggling, after drugs and firearms.
