BEIJING - China Telecom, a major wireless service provider in the country, on Thursday denied US allegations that its servers had "hijacked" Internet traffic.

"China Telecom has never done such an act," said Wang Yongzhen, a senior press official of the company, in response to foreign media citing a document released by a US Congressional advisory group and alleging that his company had rerouted Internet traffic on websites including that of the US military through its servers for 18 minutes on April 8 this year.

"These reports by foreign media are completely groundless," Wang retorted, adding his company has always abided by and strictly followed relevant international regulations and standards for Internet operations.
