The National Defense Ministry spokesman Thursday said associating hackers' cyber attacks with Chinese government and the military was groundless.

"The act to link up cyber attacks by hackers with the Chinese government and the military is both irresponsible and calculated to achieve hype out of ulterior motives," said Huang Xueping, spokesman of the Ministry of National Defense.

Huang made the remarks when asked to comment on media reports claiming the Chinese government and the military were involved in hackers' cyber attacks on Google.

"In the wake of the Google incident, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokespersons have time and again made clear China's stance, " said Huang, "China's information network, especially the part run by the military has always remained a victim of hackers' attacks from overseas."

Huang reiterated that China's law bans hackers' attacks of all forms.

"Chinese government attaches great attention to combating cyber crimes and is committed to improving cooperation in this regard with other countries and international organizations," Huang added.
