China Calls for Joint Efforts with US to Safeguard Cyberspace

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (L) and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi (R) meet at the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Beijing, Apr. 13, 2013.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Saturday called for joint efforts with the United States to safeguard cyberspace, the state-run news agency Xinhua reported.

China and the United States should conduct dialogue on cyberspace on a calm and objective basis, Wang told visiting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Beijing and Washington have been trading accusations in recent months of massive cyber intrusions. The U.S. says hacking attacks emanating from China have targeted U.S. government and corporate computer networks among others, stealing government and commercial data.

China claims that it is the victim of large-scale cyber attacks from the United States, though it has given few details.
