China wor­ried about cy­ber se­cu­rity

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

AFor­eign Min­istry spokes­woman said re­cently that the Chi­nese Government is wor­ried about re­cent neg­a­tive de­vel­op­ments in cy­ber se­cu­rity. Spokes­woman Hua Chun­y­ing made the re­marks at a reg­u­lar press brief­ing in re­sponse to a ques­tion re­gard­ing an al­leged Chi­nese cy­ber at­tack di­rected at Ger­many.

Hua said some coun­tries have treated cy­berspace as a new bat­tle­field, jus­ti­fy­ing their ef­forts to build up their own cy­ber ar­se­nals by mak­ing their own rules for how cy­berspace should be treated.

Hua said th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties have in­creased the risk for a po­ten­tial con­flict. She said the cy­ber es­pi­onage con­ducted by some coun­tries rep­re­sents an at­tempt to di­vert at­ten­tion from real prob­lems and will not help to cre­ate a co­op­er­a­tive in­ter­na­tional at­mos­phere.

“China has co­op­er­ated in the ar­eas of cy­ber se­cu­rity and law en­force­ment with 30 coun­tries, in­clud­ing Bri­tain, Ger­many and Rus­sia. It has devel­oped an over­all mech­a­nism for fight­ing cy­ber crime and hacker at­tacks,” she said, adding that China hopes rel­e­vant par­ties will stop lodg­ing ac­cu­sa­tions and work to­gether to safe­guard cy­berspace se­cu­rity.
