BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s defence ministry asked the United States on Thursday to correct its mistakes and rescind the indictments against four Chinese military personnel in the 2017 Equifax hacking case.

A defence ministry spokesman, in a statement, said the move was needed to avoid further damage to the relations of the two countries and the two armed forces.
