China, in response to allegations by a US official over the cyberattack against Sony Pictures, said on Friday it does not support illegal cyber action committed within its borders.

Representatives for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, in a statement to Reuters, also urged the United States to share evidence in the hacking case against the major Hollywood studio.

US authorities have found a possible Chinese link to the cyberattack, a US official said earlier on Friday. The FBI on Friday also formally announced that North Korea was behind the strike.
