China has protested against new accusations made by a senior German intelligence official that the Chinese government is behind almost daily Internet espionage attacks on Germany.
The Chinese Exterior Ministry said on Tuesday that it was "confused" by the comments made by Hans Elmar Remberg, vice president of the German Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the country's domestic intelligence agency.
"We decisively reject these unfounded accusations," an Exterior Ministry spokesperson said in Beijing. "We will apply for a clarification from the German government."
Remberg told a conference on industrial espionage in Berlin on Monday that the nature and frequency of the attacks on German companies pointed to a concerted targeting by Chinese hackers backed by the state.
"In our view, state Chinese interests stand behind these digital attacks,"
