BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Thursday accusations by Canada are groundless, when asked about Canada naming China and Russia among main cyber-crime threats.

Canada on Wednesday identified state-sponsored programs in China, Russia, Iran and North Korea as major cyber-crime threats for the first time, and said it feared foreign actors could try to disrupt power supplies.
