Beijing, Jan 19: Besides commenting on the Google dispute, China's foreign ministry on Tuesday, Jan 19 dubbed India's allegations that Chinese hackers tried to attack its central government offices as 'baseless'.

When questioned about the Indian National Security Advisor (NSA) MK Narayanan's statement on attempts from China to hack into computers in the India's top security and government agencies, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said, "I can say that these accusations are groundless."

"The Chinese government is firmly against hacking activities and will deal with relevant cases in accordance with the law," Ma added, before claiming that China was the biggest victim of hacking activities.

MK Narayanan on Monday, Jan 19 told Times Online that the computers in his office along with those in other government agencies had come under an attack on Dec 15, which was the same day United States reported hacking attacks.

This comes amid the country's ongoing conflict with Google over allegations of hacking attempts and differences over censorship.
