Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao told visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel 
on Monday that China firmly opposed hackers and promised full 
cooperation with Germany on the prevention and tracking of any hacker 

Wen's comments came in response to a reporter's question concerning 
reported Chinese hackers who attacked the computer networks of the 
German government.

"The Chinese government attaches great importance to the hacker attack 
on the German government networks," Wen said, adding China will take 
"determined" and "forceful" measures to combat hacker activities.

Wen held hour-long official talks with Merkel on Monday morning in the 
Great Hall of the People, at which the protection of intellectual 
property rights (IPR) was listed as a crucial area for bilateral 
strategic dialogue.

Merkel arrived in Beijing Sunday night, kicking off her second official 
visit to China as German chancellor. In her 4 day visit, she will also 
meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao and top legislator Wu Bangguo.
