WASHINGTON - 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.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry, in a statement passed on to Reuters by the Embassy in Washington, 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.
