外文标题：China seeks UN intervention to rein in US over snooping
BEIJING: China on Friday sought the United Nations' intervention to rein in the US amid global outrage over whistleblower Edward Snowden's revelations about American surveillance on phone and internet communications.
"We will maintain that relevant international regulations should be made within the framework of the United Nations, and we have made specific proposals," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular media briefing.
She said the international community should come up with these regulations on cyber security. "What cyberspace needs is not war or hegemony, not irresponsible attacks or accusations but regulation and cooperation.''
Hua said Snowden's expose had vindicated China, which has repeatedly said it was one of the major victims of cyber attacks. "My ministry has recently set up an office on cyber affairs to provide security in diplomatic dealings,'' Hua said. "China takes the issue very seriously."
The spokeswoman continued to evade questions about the extradition of Snowden, who is currently in Hong Kong.
"I have no information on that. We will continue to follow developments in this case," she said.
All right minded countries should support China in this proposal to the UN to rein in the global bully and selfish US in the fight to snooping on all countries. Just imagine if India or China planted bases and warships all around the US , they would go ballistic and make a huge ruckus and will in all certainty attack them . So why is it ok for the US to do the same to other countries and get away with it.

First of all, US policy is that rules, laws,regulations apply only to other nations and not to itself. It thinks it is above all established laws of the land becuase it has moral superiority, at least thats what it thinks and brags about it. Asides from that, I am not sure that China is doing its own surveillance on US's surveillance activities.

Snooping even Chinks do tha. But the similiarity ends there. China is snooping to attack and rob military/corporate designs or in other words espionage and loot. Whereas USA is doing it for protecting the world from porkie islamists funded by these yellow bellies.

Yeah, like USA protected the world from the WMD threat of Iraq. The fact that those WMD never existed in the first place is a minor technicality :>)) BTW, islamists, porkies or otherwise, all over the world are supported by Saudi Regime. And need I remind you which 'champion of democracy' supports the 'Monarchy' in Saudi Arab :>))

What an upside down world we now live in. China the Communist nation is seeking UN assistance to reign in the Communist style secret espionage of the Democratic US. Strange. Now China is upholding the rights of the people or the right to privacy, while Washington D.C has been caught red handed in violating those same rights.

When China has difference between US, it seeks UN intervention. But when it has issues to resolve with India, it simply intrude into territory.

China. Sigh! This country is really a messed up country that lifts up its head every time there is a conflict of interest. Since majority of cyber crimes originate in China of course they won't like US's surveillance on phone and Internet communications. Not only that, the chinese are nosiest and nastiest intruders that spy on almost every country of this world via every means of communicaitons.
May be they talk and chat to spy on world around the clock they don't want US to find out about their actions. In any case I feel the only country that can see china eye to eye is US just because of US's powerful position in the world. May be china wants that position. Anywho, Chinese can jump up and down until they are deadly tired no one cares.

Look who is crying foul...its China! This reminds me of an interesting burglary attempt in the US - a stout robber got stuck in the fireplace chimney while trying to break into a house and then he was rescued, arrested and in the end he tried suing the house owner for small, non-standard chimney size which he claimed endangered his life!! Lol! World politics is indeed very funny!

China should also restrain itself from terrorizing the small countries in Indian ocean and let them work freely in oil exploration. It has to prove its impartiality before world community yet.
