China has been violating an agreement with the United States aimed at stopping cyberespionage through the hacking of government and corporate data, a senior US intelligence official said on Thursday.

When asked if China was violating the 2015 agreement between then President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping, National Security Agency official Rob Joyce said: “We think they are.”
