China warns Google not to stop filtering web searches

China today warned Google that it would face consequences if it stopped filtering its search results, after the firm threatened to leave the country over cyberattacks and web censorship. The comments from the Minister of Industry and Information Technology, Li Yizhong, came after the US Internet giant said it was prepared to leave the worlds largest online market if Beijing continues to insist on its censoring its web searches.

We support (Google) to expand its business and market share in China, Mr Li told reporters at a briefing on the sidelines of the annual session of the National Peoples Congress. But if (it) violates Chinese laws, it would be unfriendly and irresponsible and (the company) will definitely be responsible for the consequences, he said.

Google threatened in January to abandon its Chinese-language search engine and perhaps leave China altogether over what it said were cyberattacks aimed at its source code and at the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists. The company has since continued to filter results on Google.cn and posted ads for dozens of positions in China, which has 384 million Web users.

Google says it is currently in talks with the Chinese government on its future in the country. Google is firm in its decision that it will stop censoring our search results for China, Google Vice President and Deputy General Counsel Nicole Wong told the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee this week. If the option is that well shutter our .cn operation and leave the country, we are prepared to do that, she said at a hearing on the relationship between Internet technology and aiding democratic activists around the world. The company has not given a time frame for ending its filtering.

Mr Li said Googles withdrawal would not generate much of an impact on the countrys Internet market.
