A Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said Sunday that China is “gravely concerned” about cyber attacks launched by U.S. government agencies against China, which were recently revealed by media reports.
Spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the remarks when asked by a journalist to comment on the media reports that the U.S. side had launched cyber attacks against Chinese telecom operators and Tsinghua University.
After expressing China’s grave concerns, Hua said that the reports “again proved that China is the victim of cyber attacks, and we have already lodged representations to the U.S. side.”
She reiterated that China opposes all forms of cyber attacks.
“We are willing to enhance dialogue and cooperation with the international community in a spirit of mutual respect, to jointly safeguard peace and security in cyberspace,” she said.
