BEIJING - A Foreign Ministry spokeswoman on Friday said China hopes to discuss cyber security with the Unites States.

"China resolutely opposes hacking of any form and would like to communicate with the United States on cyberspace security in a constructive way," Hua Chunying said at a daily press briefing.

Hua's comments came after newly elected Chinese President Xi Jinping held telephone talks with US President Barack Obama on Thursday, with cyber security among their topics.

According to Hua, Xi outlined China's principle and stance on the matter, saying the issue of cyber security is increasingly prominent and a security challenge confronting all countries.

It is in the fundamental interests of China, the United States and the international community to safeguard peace, security, openness and cooperation of the cyberspace, the spokeswoman said.
