Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on the 20th that China once again strongly urges the United States and its allies to stop cyber theft and attacks against China and stop spreading attacks on China on cyber security issues. Dirty water, China will take necessary measures to firmly safeguard China's cyber security and its own interests.

  In answering relevant questions at a regular press conference that day, Zhao Lijian said that the United States gathered allies to make unreasonable accusations against China on cybersecurity issues. This move was made out of nothing and reversed black and white. It was completely discredited and suppressed for political purposes, and China would never accept it. .

  He said that China firmly opposes and cracks down on any form of cyber attacks, and will not encourage, support or condone hacker attacks. This position is consistent and clear. Cyberspace is highly virtual, difficult to trace, and diverse actors. When investigating and identifying cyber incidents, there should be complete and sufficient evidence. When it comes to linking cyber attacks with a country’s government, one should be more cautious. The so-called technical details released by the US cannot constitute a complete chain of evidence.

  "In fact, the United States is the world's largest source of cyber attacks." He said that according to the China Cyber ​​Security Company 360 report, APT organizations from North America have complex attack methods and sufficient combat readiness resources, and they have persistently focused on specific industries and units. According to data from China's National Internet Emergency Response Center, in 2020, about 52,000 computer malicious program control servers located outside the country controlled about 5.31 million hosts in China. In terms of controlling the number of hosts in China, the United States and its NATO allies rank in the top three. In addition, the 360 ​​company report also shows that the CIA’s cyber attack organization "APT-C-39" has conducted operations in key areas such as China’s aerospace, scientific research institutions, petroleum industry, large Internet companies, and government agencies for up to 11 years. Network penetration attacks. "The above-mentioned attacks have seriously damaged China's national security, economic security, critical infrastructure security, and the personal information security of the general public."

  Zhao Lijian said that the United States’ eavesdropping targets include both its competitors and its own allies. The European allies of the United States have downplayed the use of the Danish intelligence service to monitor its leaders and other actions, but they have tried to catch up on the "Chinese cyberattacks" and go to war. This is inconsistent with its traditionally declared strategic autonomy.

  "Cyber ​​attacks are a common threat facing the world. We have always advocated that countries should maintain cyber security through dialogue and cooperation on the basis of mutual respect, mutual trust and mutual benefit." Zhao Lijian said that a small number of countries cannot represent the international community, and slander others cannot be whitewashed. Yourself. China once again strongly urges the United States and its allies to stop cyber thefts and attacks against China, stop pouring dirty water on China on cyber security issues, and withdraw the so-called prosecution. China will take necessary measures to firmly safeguard China's cyber security and its own interests.

  At the press conference that day, another reporter asked: We noticed that NATO issued a joint statement on China’s cyber attack this time. What’s China’s comment?

  Zhao Lijian said that under the impetus of the United States, NATO has clearly made cyberspace a new battlefield in recent years, has continuously promoted the deployment of cyber military operations, and established a cyberspace operations center of the combat command. This practice of introducing military alliances into cyberspace not only does not help to achieve their own security, but may stimulate cyber arms races, increase the risk of cyber frictions and conflicts between countries, and endanger international peace and security.

  "If NATO really cares about cyber security, it should maintain peace in cyberspace with its words and deeds, rather than prepare for war in cyberspace. If NATO really cares about the cyber security of its member states, it should first discuss its individual member states versus other members. China's large-scale cyber theft issue." He said.
