On the third day of his visit to China, British Prime Minister David Cameron stated that he looks to open “a proper dialogue” with the country concerning cyber security.

According to a report by BBC, issues concerning cyber espionage were brought up during a meeting with Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang.

While China has always denied their involvement in such actions, its prime minister reportedly expressed a “readiness to engage,” and indicated that he would like to see more dialogue concerning cyber security.

Additionally, Kequiang stated that diplomats would be taking steps toward putting a proposal into “practical action.”

This year, a report authored by security firm Mandiant, detailed an espionage campaign that was traced to advanced persistent threat groups with China-based operations.
