China say claims on blocking gmail are ‘unacceptable’

Yesterday KitGuru reported that Google claimed China were blocking their citizens from accessing Gmail services. Today the Chinese Foreign Ministry have spoken out, denying the accusations.

China’s Foreign Ministry said today that it could not accept accusations from Google Inc that the government was making it difficult for Gmail users to access the service in the country.

Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a news conference “This is an unacceptable accusation.” They have not offered any further details, however Google claim they have looked into the matter and that the issue has nothing to do with them and have pointed the finger at government blocks in the country. The Chinese government already block social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

KitGuru says: No one is explaining why the Chinese people have problems accessing Gmail.
