Beijing, 6 Jun (Zhongxin Net) -- Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin presided over a regular news conference on 9 June.

A reporter asked: Ten years ago, former US defense contractor employee Snowden broke the news to many media, using a large amount of evidence to expose the US government's long-term surveillance and surveillance of countries around the world in the name of "counter-terrorism", which triggered strong condemnation from the international community. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the exposure of the "Prism Gate" incident, what is the spokesperson's comment on this?

Wang Wenbin: "Prism Gate" reveals the true face of the "Matrix" of the United States. Ten years have passed, and the "Matrix" has not only not slowed down, but has become more brazen, trying to put the world more under the shadow of its own cyber espionage. Various US eavesdropping plans, such as the "Angry Horn" plan, the "Starwind" plan, the "Arch Plan", and "Operation Telescreen", continue to surface. The United States not only monitored the UN Secretary-General and the leaders of allied countries such as Germany, France, South Korea, and Israel, but also further "legalized" wiretapping. Section 702 of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which allows U.S. intelligence agencies to conduct surveillance of "foreign targets" without court permission, expires at the end of this year, and the White House has declared extending the validity of this provision a "key priority" for the current administration.

Over the past decade, the international community has seen more and more clearly that the United States, which claims to be the "defender" of democracy and freedom, has actually abused its technological advantages to violate the rights and freedoms of people in various countries. The United States claims to maintain cybersecurity, but in fact it is vigorously strengthening its cyber hegemony of "dominating cyberspace", expanding its cyber-military alliance, and becoming the biggest "saboteur" of cyberspace peace and stability. The "clean web" claimed by the United States is just another carefully packaged "prism" project aimed at creating a global surveillance network dominated exclusively by the United States, without any adversaries and without any supervision. Since last year, China's cybersecurity agencies and enterprises have issued a series of reports, exposing the long-term cyber attacks carried out by the United States on China and other countries, and the United States has not yet made an explanation for this, but has been busy concocting false information to divert attention.

Light will eventually triumph over darkness. As more and more countries see the hypocrisy of the "Matrix", the space for the "Matrix" to run rampant will only become smaller and smaller, and the sunshine of fairness and justice will eventually shine on the world. (End)
