China hopes to cooperate with the United States on cyber security, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

Cyber security is a global problem, Hua Chunying said at a daily news briefing after media reports that the U.S. government is considering more aggressively confronting China over cyber security issues.

"We hope the international community will make joint efforts to safeguard peace, security, openness and cooperation regarding cyberspace in the spirit of equality and mutual respect," said the spokeswoman.

Cyberspace should be a new field where China and the United States cooperate rather than face conflict with each other, she said.

Hua said the recently announced establishment of a China-U.S. cyber security working group is designed to increase dialogue and boost cooperation between the countries.

Earlier this month, China and the United States agreed to set up this group when U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Beijing. Endi
