uschinaWashington D.C,September,28,2015;-Analysts have said that the recent agreement reached between the United State and China on cybersecurity issues is only a small step in the right direction.

According to The Washington Times, analysts also said that the agreement does not guarantee either nation will cease all forms of spying or cybertheft.

Obama said, during a press conference with Chinese President Xi Jinping, that China had promised to crack down on cybertheft and will actively pursue hackers who steal intellectual property and other sensitive information from U.S. firms.

The agreement comes at a time of high tension between the two nations on the issue of cybersecurity. (ANI)
