Remarks of Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Latvia on China-related content of the 2019 Annual Report of the Constitutional Protection Bureau of Latvia

We have noted in the 2019 annual report of the Constitutional Protection Bureau of Latvia claiming that China's cyber operations have been gradually increasing, posing a serious threat to the security and interests of Western countries and harming Western economies. The report also claims that China is using cyber-espionage on a wide range of targets throughout the world, conducting cyber operations against public and private companies, academia, government institutions, military and defence sector, and non-governmental organizations, involved in cooperation with China, and these campaigns are aimed to obtain intelligence on the countries' policies. I want to emphasize that these claims are groundless and irresponsible.

The Chinese government's position on cyber security is consistent and clear. China is a staunch defender of cyber security and has always resolutely opposed and cracked down on all forms of cyber crimes in accordance with the law. In fact, China also suffers a lot from cyber attacks and is one of the major targets in global cyber attacks.

Safeguarding cyberspace security is a shared responsibility of the international community. All parties should, on the basis of mutual respect and trust, commit to promoting international cooperation in cyber security, jointly combating cyber attacks and espionage, and maintaining an open, safe, and orderly international cyber environment. Facts have proved that cyber security is a complicated global issue, and unwarranted speculation and stigmatization are undesirable, and are not conducive to international cooperation in cyber security.
