Countries should resolutely work together to prevent terrorists from taking advantage of the internet, a major tool responsible for the dramatic increase in terrorism, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in Beijing on Friday.

Surveys show that most of those who carried out attacks in China had been "seduced and incited" by terrorist audio or video clips online, Wang said, adding that countries should focus more on this phenomenon.

Wang made the remarks during a symposium on countering terrorists' use of the internet that was hosted by the Foreign Ministry under the framework of the Global Counterterrorism Forum, a body of 29 countries and the European Union.
