Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, October 12 (Reporter Hou Xiaochen) Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Guang said at a regular press conference on the 12th that China urged the United States to stop hyping the so-called "cyber theft" issue to discredit China.
A reporter asked: US network security companies recently released a report that in the past six months, China has stepped up its efforts to steal trade secrets from the US network, and China has become the largest country to support cyber attacks against the West. What is China's comment on this?
Lu Kang replied that China is one of the main victims of cyber theft and attacks, and also a staunch defender of network security. China has consistently opposed and combating any form of cyber theft and attack.
He pointed out that it was purely for ulterior motives for individual US enterprises and people to use the so-called "cyber theft" issue to make unreasonable accusations against China. According to Snowden and others, it has long been clear to the international community which country has long exercised large-scale surveillance over foreign governments, businesses and individuals, and who is the world's largest cyber attacker.
"We urge the United States to stop using the so-called"cyber theft"issue to discredit China and stop words and deeds that harm China's interests and Sino-US relations." Lu Kang said.
