"China is one of the major victims of cyber spying and attacks, but at the same time, it is a staunch advocate of cyber security. China has always firmly opposed and cracked down on any forms of cyber spying and attacks. It is absolutely out of ulterior motives for some U.S. companies and individuals to make groundless accusations against China by using the pretext of cyber spying. I think you still remember that according to the materials revealed by Edward Snowden, it is a clear fact to the international society as to which country has been carrying out long-term massive surveillance on foreign governments, companies and individuals and who is the largest cyber attacker. We urge the United States to stop smearing China by using the excuse of cyber spying, to stop its words and actions that damage China's interests and China-US relations."

China urged the United Stated to stop smearing it on the excuse of cyber spying and attack, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Friday.

Lu made the remarks in response to reports by some U.S. internet security companies, saying China has increased its spying activities on the trade secrets of U.S. companies in the past six months.

"China is one of the major victims of cyber spying and attacks, but at the same time, it is a staunch advocate of cyber security. China has always firmly opposed and cracked down on any forms of cyber spying and attacks," said Lu Kang.

Lu said that it is absolutely out of ulterior motives for some U.S. companies and individuals to make groundless accusations against China by using the pretext of cyber spying.

"I think you still remember that according to the materials revealed by Edward Snowden, it is a clear fact to the international society as to which country has been carrying out long-term massive surveillance on foreign governments, companies and individuals and who is the largest cyber attacker," said Lu.

"We urge the United States to stop smearing China by using the excuse of cyber spying, to stop its words and actions that damage China's interests and China-US relations,” he added.

Snowden, a former contractor for the Central Intelligence Agency, revealed thousands of classified documents to the press before fleeing to Russia in 2013.
