Chinese state media today accused the United States of cyber espionage around the world in an effort to remain as a global superpower while the political tensions between the two countries continue to rise.
& # 39; (Washington) has used its advantage in the telecommunications sector to always follow global communications & # 39 ;, said People & # 39; s Daily, the mouthpiece of the ruling Chinese communist party.
The newspaper said it was no surprise that the US had conducted secret surveillance because & # 39; it is worried that other countries will ruin the situation in which it alone (the world) dominates & # 39 ;.
People & # 39; s Daily, the mouthpiece of China & # 39; s ruling Communist Party, today accused the United States of monitoring countries around the world in an effort to maintain its worldwide dominant status. The Trump government and Beijing closed horns during a bitter trade war

China and the United States have locked horns during a more intense trade war after Washington accused Beijing of engaging in unfair commercial practices and stealing American technologies.
The trade war, which started last year, turned into a so-called & # 39; technology cold war & # 39; after the Trump government accused Chinese tech company Huawei of spying on Americans for Beijing – accusations Huawei has repeatedly denied.
Washington has blocked Huawei through its networks and has issued orders to prohibit the Shenzhen-based company from acquiring US components and technologies.
Trump has urged other Western countries, including the UK, to block Huawei from their 5G networks due to alleged cyber espionage.
Google then broke ties with the Chinese company and revoked the Android license – vital for the smartphones that Huawei produces.
US President Donald Trump has blocked Huawei from US networks based on allegations of cyber espionage and has given orders to prohibit the Chinese company from using US suppliers
The US is also accusing the Chinese drone maker DJI of spying on their users for Beijing. In the photo a man sees a DJI drone during an electronics show in Shanghai on 11 June
In today's newspaper, People & # 39; s Daily argued that the US had never provided any evidence to prove that Chinese technology companies – including Huawei, Hikvision and drone maker DJI – were spying on their users.
The reason Washington is so worried about Chinese technologies is because they measure the grain of others by their own scoop, the author said.
The article also accused the US of changing the internet to its home country.
The state-run newspaper quoted Washington's controversial telephone surveillance program PRISM, which was unveiled in 2013 by Edward Snowden, and claimed that & # 39; the US monitors 90 percent of global communications & # 39 ;.
Beijing accused Washington of keeping its promise during the trade war. The two parties did not reach an agreement on rates last month. Xi and Trump are pictured in their bilateral meeting at the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 1, 2018
Xi was on a three-day state visit to & # 39; best friend & # 39; Putin, while China and Russia are celebrating 70 years of diplomatic ties this year. Both nations face increasing political tensions with the US.
To prove the point, the article quoted an article from the British Newspaper The Guardian from 2014, claiming that the US National Security Agency (NSA) had secretly implanted the interception tools in US servers exported overseas.
An article from 2013 by Reuters was also cited, claiming that the NSA had arranged a secret contract of $ 10 million with RSA, one of the most influential computer security companies.
Finally, People & # 39; s Daily said that both France and German had refused to block Huawei despite Washington pressure, and it is undoubtedly a heavy blow to the US & # 39 ;.
Tensions between Washington and Beijing increased sharply in May, after the Trump government accused China of abstaining from promises to implement structural economic changes during months of trade negotiations.
People & # 39; s Daily, the spokeswoman for China & # 39; s Communist Party, said earlier that & # 39; stubborn & # 39; Washington politicians lead the US astray during the trade war against China
The United States is striving for radical changes, including an end to forced transfer of technology and theft of American trade secrets. It also wants to limit subsidies for Chinese state-owned companies and better access for American companies on Chinese markets.
On May 10, Trump raised rates for $ 200 billion in Chinese goods to 25 percent and took steps to raise more than $ 300 billion in Chinese imports. Beijing responded with tariff increases to a revised list of $ 60 billion worth of American goods.
The US government has also upset China by blacklisting Huawei effectively forbidding US companies from doing business with the Chinese company, & # 39; the world's largest telecom equipment manufacturer.

Investors are concerned that China will take revenge by blacklisting US companies or prohibiting the export to the United States of rare earth metals used in products such as memory chips, rechargeable batteries and mobile phones.
China said yesterday that it would fight to the end & # 39; if the United States insisted on increasing trade tensions – after US President Donald Trump said further rates would be ready to bet if no deal was reached at a G20 summit this month.
Trump has repeatedly said that he is preparing to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Osaka Summit in late June, but China has not confirmed it.
Trump said last week that after the meeting of the leaders of & # 39; the world's largest economies, he would decide if she would want to face a threat to impose rates for at least $ 300 billion in Chinese goods.
