Washington – Two US law enforcement officials warned against the growing threat of Chinese espionage in US national security. Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Yi described the “diverse and multifaceted threats” posed by the China government. In a separate speech at a conference on Thursday morning, everyone explained how China’s “Made in China 2020” goal put the country at risk as a result of state-sponsored espionage efforts across all U.S. industries.
The Bar and War warned that the Communist country was using both legal and illegal tactics to achieve its goals.
Bray said there are about a thousand investigations into U.S. technology China in the field office of the bureau. The bar also indicated that there would be more allegations by the judiciary aimed at hacking efforts by the Chinese government.
The two said that in some cases Chinese students were sent to American universities for stealing intellectual property and business secrets. In January, Massachusetts prosecutors charged three people in separate cases in the United States for involvement with Chinese intelligence, including the chair of the chemistry department at Harvard University, who was falsely accused of his involvement with a Chinese talent hiring initiative.
The attorney general, who worked in the private sector for five years before making his second move to the judiciary, recounted his experience as a lawyer for Verizon that the United States could raise a warning about the war with China over the next wireless standard. 5G.
“As a dictatorship, China can marshal a sovereign approach – governments, non-governmental organizations and academia acting together,” he said.
Barr explained that China is achieving its biggest ambitions through huge state-run companies such as Huawei, the telecom giant dominating the 3G sector.
“Our economic future is in jeopardy,” Barr warned. “We need to keep in mind that with the narrow window we are facing, the risk of losing the 5G struggle with China must exceed all other considerations.”
The United States is encouraging allies to ban Huawei supply networks in their countries, citing data protection concerns. Last month, Britain ignored the warnings that Huawei would be allowed to set up its 5G network.
Last year, the company was accused of forging 24 wires, smuggling money and stealing trade secrets. In an interview to CBS News, Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei later denied that his company had ever provided information to the Chinese government.
“For the past 30 years, we’ve never done it, and for the next 30 years, we’ll never do it,” Zhengfei said. “This is not possible. Because throughout our entire company, we have repeatedly emphasized that we will never do this. If we have it with advanced technology in America, they may already discover it. So, it is proven that we do not have it.”
The Attorney General has called on the private sector and American allies to come up with alternatives to Huawei’s extensive wireless infrastructure. Specifically, Bar Telecommunications has advised Nokia and Ericsson as a possible way to strategically resist the growing influence of Huawei.
Assistant Attorney General John Demers also noted that the private sector is also obligated to take this matter seriously because “at the end of the day, we do not trade, we enforce the law,” he said.
Despite the US’s concern over Chinese spying, Wai says it’s important to continue to engage with China.
“Dealing effectively with this threat does not mean that we should not do business with the Chinese, it does not mean that we should not host Chinese visitors, it does not mean that we cannot welcome Chinese students or cooperate with China on the world stage. No, “Ore said. “But this means that when China violates our criminal law and violates internationally established international standards, we will not tolerate it, rarely enable it.”
