China and Russia in separate statements on July 31 have expressed hope to resolve the alleged cyber attacks issue with the European Union. The two nations have called for a dialogue and cooperation over the alleged cyber attack issue.
The move came a day after the European Union imposed its first-ever cyber sanctions on the nationals and organizations of Russia, Chine and DPRK for their alleged involvement in cyber attacks.
“Tracing the origin of cyber attacks is a highly complicated and sensitive issue. The international community should address cyber-related disputes through dialogue and cooperation,” said China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin adding that China is also a victim of cyber attacks and has been cracking down on the culprits using China’s cyber infrastructure in accordance with law.
