(AP) The top American military officer is calling on China to increase its transparency and boost collaboration with the U.S. over hacking.

Gen. Martin Dempsey says tackling cyber intrusions featured in his talks with his Chinese counterpart and other Chinese leaders during his three-day visit to China that concluded Wednesday.

Washington has grown increasingly concerned with hacking attacks against U.S. targets believed to originate in China, but Dempsey said he didn't discuss any specific measures being considered to discourage such activity. Instead, he said he stressed the common danger posed to the U.S. and Chinese economies as hacking attacks move from information theft, to disruption, and finally destruction of computer networks.

Dempsey said the sides also discussed tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Beijing is North Korea's most important ally.
