China calls US top threat to global cybersecurity

China-US relations have been deteriorating since Washington accused Beijing of being the source of coronavirus and oppression in Xinjiang


As the relations between the United States and China continue to sour, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on 5 July said that Washington is “the top threat to global cybersecurity.” In a regular press briefing on 5 July, Wenbin cited “facts” that had repeatedly emerged to claim that the US had been pressuring companies to install backdoors in a bid to obtain user data in violation of relevant rules. 

The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said that, for long, the US has been taking advantage of its advanced tech capacity to run invasive surveillance on people at both home and abroad. He blamed the US for stealing several types of data and for the violation of all kinds of privacy.

“As facts have proven time and again, it is the US that has been forcing companies to install backdoors and obtaining user data in violation of relevant rules. The US itself is the top threat to global cybersecurity,” Wenbin said.

The spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry of China said further, “The Patriot Act adopted after 9/11 requires cyber companies to offer regular updates on user information. This move has drawn much attention from around the world. France’s CNIL decided in December last year that the French websites of Google and Amazon breached relevant French law by placing cookies on the computers of users without obtaining prior consent and without providing adequate information. Earlier, Ireland asked to suspend the transmission of EU user data to the US.”

“We call on the international community to jointly expose and reject US practices that endanger global cybersecurity and undermine global rules,” The spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry of China said.

China-US relations have been deteriorating since the time Washington took umbrage at on several issues including the origin of coronavirus and human rights violation of Uyghurs in Xinjiang province.

Meanwhile, citing disclosures made by the Justice Department, an independent analyst reported that the Chinese state-run newspaper China Daily paid several hundred thousand dollars to American publications like the Time and Foreign Policy magazines over a period of six months.

The disclosure said that Time received $ 700,000, Financial Times $ 371,577, Foreign Policy magazine $ 291,000, The Los Angeles Times $ 272,000, and others received over $ 1 million.
