    Beijing has called on the United States to stop accusing China of cyberhacking following US accusations that China intercepted secrets from US companies, Xinhua reported Thursday.

    MOSCOW, October 9 (RIA Novosti) - Beijing has called on the United States to stop accusing China of cyberhacking following US accusations that China intercepted secrets from US companies, Xinhua reported Thursday.

    "Chinese laws forbid hacking or any other behavior harmful to cyber security, and it is an undoubted fact that the Chinese government resolutely cracks down on crimes," Xinhua quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei as saying.

    The statement by China's foreign minister follows the Sunday statement of US Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey who accused China of hacking US companies.

    Hong, China's foreign minister, also added that such accusations by the United States won't hold good.
