Beijing: The top US military officer said on Wednesday that he has called on China to be more transparent about cyberattacks and boost collaboration with the US to tackle a common threat to their economies. General Martin Dempsey said tackling cyber intrusions featured in his talks with his Chinese counterpart and other Chinese leaders during his three-day visit to China aimed at building mutual trust between the world's most powerful military and China's fast-growing and increasingly sophisticated force.
Washington has grown increasingly concerned with hacking attacks against US targets believed to originate in China, prompting calls for a strong response ranging from cyber countermeasures to trade sanctions. However, Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he didn't discuss any specific measures being considered to discourage such activity. Instead, he said he stressed the common danger posed to the US and Chinese economies as hacking attacks move from information theft, to disruption and finally destruction of computer networks.
