China on Sunday said it has always opposed to and forbidden all sorts of criminal activities that could break down computer networks, including hacker activities.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu made the remarks when asked to comment on recent German media reports that held Chinese hacker accountable for attacking the computer networks of German governmental organs.
Jiang noted Chinese laws and regulations have clear provisions on forbidding such computer-related criminal activities.
Hacker attack is an international issue and China was also a victim, she said.
China has established sound cooperation mechanism with many countries in the world to jointly combat crimes related to computer networks, Jiang said, adding that China hopes to strengthen such cooperation with Germany, too.
