Lu Wei during a meeting with Apple CEO Cook pointed out that China is the largest foreign market for US Internet companies, the new Apple device users, half from China. He said China is willing to open technology products market, but the bottom line is any technology product must safeguard national security and ensure information security and privacy of users.

Cook apparently responded promising that Apple will not provide any information to a third party and will not "open the back door."
