China calls accusations of links to hacking ‘irresponsible’

China said Friday that any allegations that it was involved in breaking into US government computers are irresponsible.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a regular news briefing that Beijing hopes the US would be “less suspicious and stop making any unverified allegations, but show more trust and participate more in cooperation.”

US officials say China-based hackers are suspected of breaking into the computer networks of the US government personnel office and stealing identifying information of at least 4 million federal workers.
