On July 5, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin hosted a regular press conference. A reporter asked a question. On June 30, Microsoft Vice President Burt said at the hearing of the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives that the U.S. law enforcement agencies have issued 2,400 to 3,500 nondisclosure orders to Microsoft each year in the past five years to obtain its user data. Effectively regulated by the U.S. courts. What is China’s comment?
Wang Wenbin said, I have noticed relevant reports. Facts have proven time and time again that it is the United States that forces companies to open “back doors” and illegally obtain user data. The United States is the biggest threat to global cybersecurity.
Wang Wenbin said that for a long time, the United States has used its powerful technical capabilities to monitor its own people and people in all countries, steal all kinds of data, and violate all kinds of privacy. After “9.11”, the “Patriot Act” introduced by the United States requires American Internet companies to provide user information on a regular basis. This move by the United States has attracted widespread attention from all over the world. According to reports, in December last year, the French National Information and Freedom Committee said that the French websites of Google and Amazon were storing data stored when they browsed the web without prior permission, and did not explain its purpose, in violation of France. related terms. Earlier, Ireland had asked Facebook to stop transferring EU user data to the United States.
Wang Wenbin pointed out that from the Snowden incident nearly 10 years ago to the recent revelations that the United States was monitoring senior officials of its “allies” through submarine optical cables, facts have repeatedly proved that the United States itself is a world-recognized “Matrix” and a major secret thief. . Such a country, under the guise of “maintaining network security”, suppresses companies from other countries and advocates the exclusion of “clean networks” in certain countries. This is a typical example of “only state officials are allowed to set fires, and people are not allowed to light lights”, which fully exposes the U.S. maintenance Cyber security is false, but it is true to suppress competitors and maintain its own cyber hegemony. This is in stark contrast to the purpose and purpose of the Global Data Security Initiative launched by China.
Wang Wenbin emphasized that we call on the international community to jointly expose and resist the actions of the United States that endanger global cybersecurity and undermine international rules.
