US to continue to raise cyber theft issues with China

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew raised concerns on cyber security during his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in China.

The USA will continue to raise cyber security issues with China, specifically theft of intellectual property and trade secrets, the country’s Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says.

Lew had already raised concerns on cyber security during his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in China which he said it was productive.

“It is fundamentally a different set of issues and is something that is going to remain high on our agenda of issues to talk to with them about,” Lew was quoted by Reuters.

Computer hacking has been a controversial issue between the two countries, with the US intelligence leaders alleging that cyber-attacks and cyber espionage had succeeded terrorism as the top security threat facing the US.

China on the other hand accused US of double standards in cyber security following Edward Snowden revelations, who escaped from from Hong Kong to Russia.
