Obama says every country engages in intelligence gathering, which he called an occasional source of tension. But the president says there's a big difference between China trying to find out what he's saying in meetings with the Japanese and a hacker connected with the Chinese government breaking into Apple or other U.S. companies.
Obama pressed China's president on cyberhacking last week during a meeting in California. Obama said their conversations on the topic were "very blunt."
Obama spoke in an interview with PBS' Charlie Rose.
