ABOARD A U.S. AIRCRAFT (AP) — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is meeting with members of a Chinese delegation this weekend and will likely talk about ongoing cyberthreats.
Any discussion would come amid new reports that China used computer-based attacks to access data from dozens of Pentagon weapons programs and other defense technologies.
Speaking to reporters on his plane en route to Singapore on Thursday, Hagel says that the U.S. must find ways to work with the Chinese and other countries to develop rules of the road and a better understanding among nations for the use of cyber technologies.
Hagel says there's only one way to deal with these issues — in his words, "that's straight up."
