Secretary of State John Kerry announced Saturday that China and the U.S. will create a cybersecurity working group amid calls for dialogue and cooperation between the two countries.

Kerry told reporters in Beijing that the working group will tackle cyber-related issues such as those affecting the financial sector, Reuters reports.

Citing China’s official news agency, Terril Yue Jones writes Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Kerry the two countries should aim to increase mutual trust and cooperation in cyberspace.

“It’s important to have a dialogue on this, but it’s also important that the dialogue be a means to an end, and the end is really ending these practices,” Robert Hormats, under secretary of state for economic affairs, told Reuters.
