Multiple arms of the Trump administration are preparing to condemn China this week for allegedly stealing U.S. trade secrets and technologies, according to a new report.
The Washington Post, citing U.S. officials, reported Tuesday that President Donald Trump's Department of Justice is also expected to announce charges against multiple alleged hackers thought to be working for a Chinese intelligence service.
Additionally, the administration plans to disclose classified information about breaches of U.S. networks and sanction some of the people deemed responsible.
The punitive measures come less than a week after the arrest in Canada of Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei. China strongly opposed the arrest of Meng, who currently faces extradition to the U.S. Her arrest is reportedly related to violations of U.S. sanctions.
