China Suspends Cyber Working Group With US In Protest Of Indictments



by Joseph Earnest  May 19, 2014


Newscast BEIJINGChina on Monday decided to suspend activities of the China-U.S. Cyber Working Group as the U.S. announced indictments against five Chinese military officers on allegation of cyber theft.

"Given the lack of sincerity on the part of the U.S. to solve issues related to cyber security through dialogue and cooperation, China has decided to suspend activities of the China-U.S. Cyber Working Group," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang regarding the U.S. Justice Department's announcement on Monday.

The US side announced on Monday indictments against five Chinese military officers on allegations of cyber theft. China lodged a protest with the US side right after the announcement, urging the US side to immediately correct its mistakes and withdraw the "indictment", he said.

The position of the Chinese government on cyber security is consistent and clear-cut. China is steadfast in upholding cyber security. The Chinese government, the Chinese military and their relevant personnel have "never engaged or participated" in cyber theft of trade secrets. The U.S. accusation against Chinese personnel is "purely ungrounded and with ulterior purpose," Qin said.

China has, on many occasions, made serious representations with the U.S. side, Qin said, "We once again strongly urge the U.S. side to make a clear explanation of what it has done and immediately stop such kind of activities."

Qin warned that China would react further to the U.S. "indictment" as the situation evolves.  Add Comments>>
