NEW YORK -- Google CEO Sundar Pichai reiterated his company's commitment to "making the world's information available to everyone" in a letter to American lawmakers in response to their concerns about its plans to return to mainland China with a censored version of its search engine service.

The Aug. 31 letter did not rule out bringing the company's search feature back, suggesting that Google's tools could "help to facilitate an exchange of information and learning that would have broad benefits inside and outside of China."
