Piracy poses a great danger to international security and peace. It is necessary for the international community and individual States to take actions to suppress piracy. Despite international cooperation and existing international antipiracy laws, the international community lacks an effective legal regime to suppress piracy. China has fundamental interests in fighting against piracy and has actively cooperated in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions. However, China's domestic antipiracy laws are defective in their substantive and procedural aspects. Further efforts should be made at both the national and international levels in order to effectively suppress global piracy.
