Rep. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations East Asian and Pacific Affairs subcommittee, recently questioned how sincere China’s government will be in discussions with the White House on cyber issues.
Cardin told Joseph Yun, acting assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, that U.S. officials should not yield on America having a right to respond to attacks in cyberspace, Federal Times reported Thursday.
John Bennett writes U.S. and Chinese officials will soon start up a new collaborative working group to address cyber attacks.
Yn told Federal Times U.S. officials believe the Chinese government, which he called “the state,” has been involved in cyber theft.
