Kuwait Times - - International -

BEI­JING: China has stepped up its cam­paign against for­eign es­pi­onage with a web­site in Man­darin and English en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to re­port na­tional se­cu­rity threats such as bids to “over­throw the so­cial­ist sys­tem”. The web­site, www.12339.gov.cn, launched by the Min­istry of Na­tional Se­cu­rity on Sun­day, also urges any­one to re­port at­tempts by Chi­nese na­tion­als or for­eign­ers to bribe state or mil­i­tary of­fi­cials, in­sti­gate armed ri­ots or in­cite eth­nic sep­a­ratism. Po­ten­tial prob­lem­atic be­hav­ior also in­cludes for­eign­ers meet­ing “any per­son within China who has con­ducted ac­tiv­i­ties en­dan­ger­ing state se­cu­rity or is strongly sus­pected of do­ing so”-rais­ing con­cerns that any in­ter­ac­tion with dis­si­dents would be frowned upon. —AFP
