China rejects Google accusation on email

China is rejecting accusations of interfering in Google's email services.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu referred questions to the Cabinet's news office but said China did not accept such accusations.

Some Google users in China have reported experiencing difficulties accessing their email service in recent weeks. The company said in a brief statement Sunday that its engineers had determined there were no technical problems with the email service or its main website.

China has strict controls over the Internet and blocks many international social media sites, including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The controls have intensified since pro-democracy protests erupted across the Middle East, setting the Beijing authorities on edge.
