BEIJING, March 23 (Xinhua) -- The Google case will not affect China-U.S. relations "unless someone politicalizes the issue," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said on Tuesday.

Qin told a regular press conference that the Google case is just a business case and will not damage the image of China.

He blamed the move to relate the case to the China-U.S. relations as "making a fuss" and "overstating the issue."

Google's chief legal officer David Drummond made the "stop censoring" announcement in a blog post at about 3 a.m. Tuesday Beijing Time, more than two months after the company said it had been attacked by hackers supported by the Chinese government and was considering pulling out of the Chinese market.
