Google, in talks with China after threatening to stop censoring Internet search results there, said the discussions will yield results soon.
"We decided not to publicize our dealings with China," Chief Executive Officer Eric Schmidt said at a media conference in Abu Dhabi. "We're in active talks with the Chinese government and we have no specific timetable, but something will happen soon." Schmidt declined to elaborate further on the talks or the source of the cyber attack. The Chinese government, which requires search engines to censor results, has denied any involvement in the incident. Google said on March 2 it hasn't set a deadline for ending the censorship.
