China has suspended a joint cybersecurity working group with the U.S. following the latter’s indictment of 5 Chinese army officials over hacking operations that allegedly sought to steal trade secrets and strategic information from U.S. corporations. In a Monday statement, China’s Foreign Ministry hit back at the U.S. for (of course) its aggressive hacking of the Middle Kingdom. It suggested that the U.S. also engaged in theft. The suspended Sino-U.S. network working group was intended to provide a forum for resolving key disputes, chief among them the intellectual property issue.
