BEIJING - China on Monday rejected a US accusation that it had hacked into an American satellite system, calling the claim "factitious".
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the comments when questioned about a recent report on the suspicions by the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission.
"This commission always observes China through tainted glasses. The report is totally factitious, made with ulterior motives, and does not warrant refuting," Hong said.
China has been a victim of hacker attacks as well, Hong said, adding the country opposes any kind of cyber crime.
