China is a staunch defender of cyber security and has always resolutely opposed to and cracked down on any form of cyberattacks, said the Chinese embassy in Norway in a statement on Tuesday.
The Norwegian side suddenly claimed that the cyberattack of March on the Storting's email system originated from China, without prior communication to verify relevant information with the Chinese side, according to the embassy.
"In the meantime, a group of other Western countries and organizations also made accusations regarding cyber security aiming at China. It is reasonable to question and doubt whether this is a collusively political manipulation," read the statement.
China has requested the Norwegian side to provide evidences for the claim.
"We are willing to cooperate with all relevant parties, based on facts and evidence, to jointly combat illegal activities in cyber space. At the same time, we strongly oppose baseless accusations and smears towards China and politicizing relevant issues," said the embassy.
