China Understands ‘Blunt’ Message on Hacking: Obama

WASHINGTON – US President Barack Obama said that China has understood his “very blunt” message that cyber-hacking against the United States will lead to a deterioration of relations between the two powers.

“We’ve had very blunt conversations about this. They understand, I think, that this can adversely affect the fundamentals of the US-China relationship,” Obama told “The Charlie Rose Show” in an interview broadcast late Monday.

Obama raised charges of a Chinese cyber-hacking campaign when he met on June 7-8 at a resort in California with China’s new President Xi Jinping, who told reporters that the Asian power was also a victim of cyber theft.
