2014-06-06 16:15 CNTV Web Editor: Yao Lan

Last month, Chinese Ambassador to the United States gave an interview on CNN, criticizing US accusations that the Chinese military was engaged in cyber espionage. On May 19th, US officials charged five individuals connected to China's military with hacking American firms. China's Assistant Foreign Minister, Zheng Zeguang summoned US Ambassador to China Max Baucus to lodge a complaint. At the same time, Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai also lodged solemn representations to Washington. A day later, Ambassador Cui sat down with CNN host Christiane Amanopour to voice China's concerns.

"It's really amazing to see that some people still believe they have the moral high ground and credibility to accuse others if we consider the Snowden revelations and so on, so forth. And people still can do that. I think the fact is China is a victim to such cyber attacks. There has been persistent and large-scale attacks on China's Internet, on China's government institutions, schools, universities, companies and even individuals. And these originate from the United States. So we have always requested the United States to give us a clear and thorough clarification. But they still have none of it yet." Cui said.
