Beijing urges Washington to stop defaming China with accusations of so-called cyber theft and undermining Chinese interests and bilateral relations, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a regular press conference Friday.

China is one of the main victims of network theft and attacks, and also a staunch defender of network security. China has consistently opposed and combated any form of cyber theft and attack, Lu stressed.

US cyber security firm Recorded Future has recently alleged that Chinese cyber espionage against the US is increasing.

Lu refuted the accusation, saying, it was motivated by“ulterior motives” by some individual enterprises and people against China. 

The leaked information by Edward Snowden has clearly shown the international community which country exercised large-scale surveillance over foreign governments, businesses and individuals, and who the world's largest cyber attacker is, Lu said.
