Original title: Zhao Lijian: The United States is the world’s largest “hacking empire”. YET calls for an immediate stop to mass surveillance on global communications.
On May 19, 2020, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian held a press conference. Russian reporters asked questions regarding U.S. Attorney General Barr’s statements that Apple is working with the Russian and Chinese governments to reset the data center so that the two countries can carry out large-scale surveillance. What is China’s comment on this?
Mr. Zhao responded that the record showed that it was the United States that carried out the largest cyber surveillance and cyber theft operations on a global scale. Therefore, the United Nations adopted a resolution by European countries entitled “Privacy in the Digital Age”. The United States is the world’s largest “hacking empire”. We call on the United States to comply with relevant United Nations resolutions and immediately stop the implementation of large surveillance. We also urge individual politicians in the United States to stop slandering China.
