The US and China are playing cyber security politics in an attempt to solve the cyber attack issues currently plaguing both countries:

U.S. national security adviser Susan Rice had a “frank and open exchange about cyber issues” in her meeting this week with Meng Jianzhu, secretary of the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission of the Chinese Communist Party, the White House said in a statement.

The Chinese delegation also had meetings with Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey and representatives from the Justice, State and Treasury departments and the intelligence community, the statement said.

President Barack Obama said last month he would raise concerns about China’s cyber security behavior when he meets with Xi in Washington.

The Obama administration is considering targeted sanctions against Chinese individuals and companies for cyber attacks against U.S. commercial targets, several U.S. officials have said.
