Beijing said Monday that a U.S. congressional advisory panel is "very biased" in doctoring a report, which accuses China of piercing U.S. computer networks to gather useful data.

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission alleged in its 2009 report to Congress last week that there was growing evidence of Chinese government involvement in such activity.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Monday that the congressional report was a twisted and calibrated attack on China.

"This report disregards the facts, is full of bias and has ulterior motives," Qin said in a statement on the ministry's website.

"We advise this so-called commission to not always look at China through tinted glasses and stop interfering with China's internal politics and damaging Sino-U.S. ties," the spokesman added.

The 12-member U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission was set up in 2000 to analyze the implications of growing trade with China. Many reported worked out by the commission holds a critical view of the rising Asian giant country.

In this year's report, the commission accused China of engaging aggressive espionage against the United States, focusing on obtaining American data and know-how to help China's military modernization and economic development, according to a report from the Reuters.
