Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks
2018/11/20

Q: According to Australian media, an Australian official accused China of launching more and more cyber-attacks this year. He said that the objective is to steal Australia's intellectual property. So, are you aware of the media report and what is your reaction to that?

A: Cyber security is a global issue and cyber-attack is a common challenge faced by all countries. Cyberspace is a virtual and complicated one where all parties' interests are intertwined. It shall be maintained by the international community, including the government, business, think tank and media sectors, with constructive efforts.

Relevant reports and accusations are fabricated without facts but with hidden motives. They are unprofessional and irresponsible. They will only heighten tension and rivalry, instead of helping to protect the common security of cyberspace.
