Washington is increasingly concerned about the Chinese theft of American intellectual property, but has been put on the defensive by the revelations about U.S. surveillance by NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

China and the U.S. announced in April the formation of a working group on cyber issues. It met for the first time Monday at the State Department. Both civilians and military are taking part.

The U.S. side is led by coordinator for cyber issues, Christopher Painter. China’s is led by senior Foreign Ministry official, Dai Bing.

It’s a prelude to annual, ministerial-level talks on security and the economy that start Wednesday.
