This move has severely violated basic norms governing international relations and is seriously harmful to cooperation between the two countries, Hua said.

“The Chinese government's position on cyber security is consistent and clear. As a staunch defender of cyber security, China has consistently opposed and cracked down on any form of cyber theft and hacking.The Chinese government has never participated in or supported anyone in any form in stealing commercial secrets,” Hua said.

She said the Chinese government has lodged solemn representations to the US side protesting the act.
