Beijing has demanded a clear explanation from Washington over reports of espionage by the US National Security Agency (NSA) on Chinese institutions.


Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hong Lei, said on Monday that Beijing is gravely concerned about the claims and demands that any such spying be stopped.


"China has already lodged many complaints with the United States about reports of its espionage activities," the Chinese official added.

The spying revelations were reported by the German weekly Der Spiegel and the US daily New York Times, which said the NSA began targeting Chinese telecoms giant, Huawei, in early 2009.


According to the reports, the NSA had hacked into the email servers of Huawei and targeted several government institutions.

Der Spiegel also said that the NSA targeted Chinese officials, including former President Hu Jintao during his reign, as well as ministries and financial institutions.


The reports cited secret US intelligence documents leaked by American whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Snowden, who is currently staying in Russia after Moscow granted him political asylum, caused a major headache for the US administration when he revealed US spying programs around the world last year.

The Snowden leaks have sparked global outrage. The documents detailed vast intelligence collection by the NSA on dozens of world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

US President Barack Obama said in December 2013 that Snowden’s leaks did unnecessary damage to America’s spying operations. “The way in which these disclosures happened has been damaging to the United States and damaging to our intelligence capabilities,” Obama added.

Snowden’s revelations have caused uproar in the US regarding privacy rights. They have also angered many US allies whose leaders were targeted by the NSA.

The USA does not give clear explanations of their spying.
The best way around this is to use only Chinese made servers and build your own firewalls
that monitor all message IP addresses. Issue IPv6 addresses to people and keep the IP addresses
of government members secret. Known IP addresses can be given different levels of access inside China.
IP addresses outside China can be given rights to only "print screen" basically. No links allowed.
Anyone can send anything to China but it can't contain anything other than text or HTML that has
been checked. Any addresses not known will be pinged immediately and if they don't meet certain
criteria they can be investigate further or blocked.
These are very basic suggestions.
Chinese computer scientist are more than capable to carry out this and more elaborate security.
China already knows it can't trust anything the USA has been involved in.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Somehow this is justice
China spies on USA and the rest of the world and everybody is annoyed.
Now China finds out that it was spied on and is also not too pleased about it.

Spying has probably been around longer than prostitution.

China has been spying on the US FAR more than the US on China.  China stole the nuclear fission and fusion bomb designs from the US.  When I was a post-doc at a weapons lab in the US, a bunch of Chinese spys posing as post docs stole designs for a  thermonuclear weapon as small as a watermelon.

Huawei is known to be in collusion with the Chinese government and recently attempted to purchase a major US technology company so the US would like to know more about this company and what there plans are.

It's the chicken and the egg. Who started spying first? Irregardless, both are guilty of it and I find it funny when they act aghast.
