Chinese Embassy Speaks
On Data Cyber Security Issues

The Chinese embassy in Liberia says it has taken note of an article published by relevant Liberian media on the security of biometric voting data, which made groundless attacks and false accusations against China in the field of data cyber security.

The Embassy expresses its strong dissatisfaction and opposition to pointing out that the Chinese government’s position on the issue of data cybersecurity is consistent and clear.

The Embassy said China is a staunch defender of data network security and has always firmly opposed and combated any form of cyber theft.

“The Chinese government has never in any way participated in or supported any organization or individual engaged in the theft of sensitive information from other countries as to which countries are the “Matrix”, everybody knows well, “ the Embassy’s statement noted.

The diplomatic mission said “China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference in internal affairs of other countries. The joint bidding by Chinese, Liberian and Nigerian companies for the Liberian biometric voter registration system is purely a commercial act.”

It reminded everyone that China understands Liberia’s legitimate concerns about data network security, and requires Chinese companies to abide by local laws and regulations in their commercial activities in Liberia.

China believes that the Liberian government will conduct the bidding process of the biometric voter registration system under the principle of transparent and fair competition, and opposes the practice of politicizing this technical work.
