BEIJING - China on Tuesday appealed for communication with the United States on cyber security.

"China proposes stronger cooperation with the United States on cyber security," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a daily press briefing in response to a question claiming US governmental organizations and businesses have been victims of cyber attacks by the Chinese military.

Hong stressed cyber security is a global issue, confronting not only America, but also China.

The latter has also been victim to cyber attacks, yet China has never accused the United States on the matter, the spokesman said, adding the United States has thus far not provided solid proof of Chinese hackers.

"We would like to sit down with the United States, communicate on the issues and discuss the formulation of related international regulations so as to jointly safeguard peace, security, openness and cooperation in cyberspace," he added.
