President Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping ended their two-day summit with one Chinese leader saying the leaders had, “blazed a new trail”.
On that trail was the subject of cyber security. The American president raised specific examples of the type of hacking that concerns the US. China now understands the depth of our worries about the problem said one American official.
Senior Chinese foreign policy adviser Yang Jiechi gave his reaction.
“On cyber security we pointed out that the Chinese government attaches great importance to it. And the government is against all forms of cyber and hacker attacks. China itself is also a victim of cyber attacks and we are a staunch supporter of cyber security.”
While cyber attacks may have caused some friction the two leaders found common ground on North Korea.
“They agreed that North Korea has to denuclearise, that neither country will accept North Korea as a nuclear-armed state, and that we would work together to deepen US-China cooperation and dialogue to achieve denuclearisation,” said Tom Donilon, US National Security Adviser.
Outside the summit which was the first meeting between the two men since MR Xi became president in March was a group of protesters. They are calling for an end to alleged persecution of followers of the Falun Gong spiritual movement and to bring those accused of perpetrating it to justice.
