China's Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai said both China and US were facing cyber attacks, but they were in no way directed by either government. He added that both countries were already discussing the issue during their regular strategic consultations.
"I want to clear something up: there are no contradictions between China and the United States" on the issue of hacking, Cui said.
"Though hackers attack the US Internet and China's Internet, I believe they do not represent any country," he added.
China was accused behind many cyber attacks on Western government and corporate websites. Recently, the web-search giant Google accused Chinese hackers for hacking its Gmail accounts. Western media alleged that Chinese Communist government was giving financial and other aids for hackers to attack websites.
Following these allegations, Chinese government retorted at Google saying that it was becoming a political tool of the West. China blamed that Google was "deliberately pandering to negative Western perceptions of China, and strongly hinting that the hacking attacks were the work of the Chinese government."
