The United States top Marine general has said on Thursday the Chinese military was benefiting from the work what Alphabet Incs Google was doing in Beijing, the country where the giant technology has long sought to be and have the biggest presence in the globe.
According to Dawn news reports, while addressing a US Senate armed services committee hearing, chairman of the joint chief of staff Marine General Joseph Dunford said, “The work that Google is doing in China is indirectly benefiting the Chinese military.”
The US top marine general further stated: “We watch with great concern when industry partners work in China knowing that there is that indirect benefit.”
Dunford added saying that “frankly, ‘indirect’ maybe not a full characterisation of the way it really is, it is more of a direct benefit to the Chinese military.”
Google has last year, said that it will be no longer vying for the $10 billion cloud computing deal with the United States defence department because the company’s fresh ethical guidelines fail to align with the contract.
