Federal Times: Trump administration and Chinese officials met on Oct. 4 to discuss a 2015 agreement between then-President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping, reaffirming the countries’ commitment to preventing cybercrime.
At the first ever U.S.-China Law Enforcement Cybersecurity Dialogue (LECD), U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke met with Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Public Security Guo Shengkun.
“Both sides reiterated that all consensus and cooperative documents achieved at the three rounds of the China-U.S. High-Level Joint Dialogue on Combating Cyber Crimes and Related Issues since 2015 remain valid,” a Department of Justice press release said. “Both sides intend to improve cooperation with each other on cybercrime, including sharing cybercrime-related leads and information, and responding to Mutual Legal Assistance requests, in a timely manner, including with regard to cyber fraud (including business email compromises), hacking crimes, abuse of internet for terrorist purposes, and internet dissemination of child pornography.”
