Statements by Liu Zhengrong, deputy chief of the Internet Affairs Bureau of the State Council Information Office, China:

“Regulating the Internet according to law is international practice,” Liu told reporters. “After studying Internet legislation in the West, I’ve found we basically have identical legislative objectives and principles.”

Liu said “it is unfair and smacks of double standards when (they) criticize China for deleting illegal and harmful messages while it is legal for US websites for doing so.”
