China Tries to Filter Internet’s Content: China’s State Council, striving to embrace the Internet but not its pornographic and political content, adopted unspecified draft rules governing links to overseas computer information networks. In an executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Peng, the Cabinet reiterated its provisional approval for global computer links, the official New China News Agency reported. The Cabinet concluded that it was “imperative” to formulate laws and regulations to improve management of international computer links and “ensure the sound development of computer information exchanges,” the news agency said. Officials contacted at the State Council offices declined to provide a copy of the draft rules or to disclose its contents.
