US seeks resumption of cyber talks with China

(Associated Press Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. will next month urge China to resume discussions on cyber security suspended after the Americans charged five Chinese military officers with hacking into U.S. companies to steal trade secrets.


Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Russel told The Associated Press Thursday the U.S. would push for a resumption of the cyber working group when officials meet at the annual U.S.-China Security and Economic Dialogue in Beijing in the second week of July.

After the indictments against the five officers were unsealed in May, Beijing pulled the plug on the group that had been set up a year ago in what Washington viewed as a diplomatic coup.

U.S.-China ties have come under growing strain, also because of China's assertive actions in the disputed South and East China Seas.
