WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House backs Google's decision to no longer support China's censoring of searches that happen on the Google platform, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Thursday.

China has defended its extensive censorship after the U.S. Internet search giant threatened to quit the country.

Asked whether the issue would cloud U.S.-China relations, Gibbs told reporters President Barack Obama had strong beliefs about the universal rights of men and women worldwide which would not be "carved out" for certain countries.
