China and the United States have reached important consensus on combating cyber crimes.
The consensus was reached by President Xi Jinping’s special envoy Meng Jianzhu during his visit to the United States.
Meng, head of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the CPC Central Committee, was in the U.S. from Wednesday to Saturday.
He met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson.
Meng said China and the United States are both countries with highly-developed Internet technology.
He stressed China’s firm stand against cyber attacks and commercial cyber espionage, saying that anyone who conducts such acts in China violates laws and will be subject to legal liability.
