Google “Terminated” China Prototype Dragonfly: Facebook Inc. Reacts

Google pulled its search engine from mainland China in 2010, but the company began developing a separate prototype Chinese search service as early as 2016, “Dragonfly” surfaced shortly after Google nixed a U.S. military contract and Facebook Inc. didn’t take it so well. On Tuesday Karan Bhatia said the project was “terminated”.

 

Google’s chief executive officer told U.S. Senator Mark Warner that the company has ended some partnerships in China.

 

 

“I do think there’s some explaining that Google needs to make,” Warner said in an interview with Emily Chang on “Bloomberg Technology.” “I’ve met with the Google CEO. He said they are backing out of some of those partnerships, and they’re willing to work with the U.S. government.”

 

In a speech on Sunday, Thiel, a Facebook Inc. board member, raised the question of whether Google’s management was “infiltrated” by foreign intelligence agencies. On Monday, the company said it has never worked with the Chinese military.

 

“I think that Mr. Thiel and Mr. Trump’s statements are a little over the top,” Warner said.
