Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Remarks on Dutch Media's Reports on Cyber Security Issue Related to China
2019/12/20

Q: According to the Dutch media reports, Dutch cybersecurity and IT company Fox-IT released a report on China's 'cyber espionage' on Thursday, saying that 'Chinese hackers who are likely working to support the interests of the Chinese government, have broken into dozens of companies to obtain information for espionage purposes in 10 countries and across a wide variety of industries, including Energy, Health Care and High-Tech'. What is your comment?

A: We have noticed the relevant news and reports. As we can see, there are many vague and ambiguous words and speculations in the report. They are entirely groundless fabrications and nothing new. Given the virtual nature of cyberspace and the fact that there are various online actors who are difficult to trace, it is very important to have enough evidence when investigating and identifying cyber-related incidents, rather than preconceived and subjective conjectures and random accusations. I'd like to stress that China is one of the main victims of cyber espionage and attacks, and is also a staunch champion of cyber security. China consistently opposes and combats all forms of cyber espionage and attacks. Cybersecurity is a global issue. China calls on the international community to deal with cybersecurity threats through dialogue and cooperation on the basis of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit.
