US hacking accusations are misplaced: China

Last Updated: Friday, May 31, 2013 - 08:33

Beijing: The Chinese Defence Ministry on Thursday described the US report, alleging Chinese hackers of having obtained designs for US weapon systems, as erroneous.

The report underestimates the Pentagon`s security capabilities as well as the Chinese people`s intelligence, reported Xinhua citing Defence Ministry`s spokesperson Geng Yansheng on Thursday.

"China already has the ability to build the weapons needed for national security. China`s aircraft carrier, fighter jets, large transport aircraft and Beidou satellite navigation system have clearly demonstrated this," he said.
The Washington Post recently cited a US Defence Science Board report to be submitted to the Pentagon as saying that many advanced US weapon systems designs had been obtained by hackers from China.
