Medvedev urges to cooperate on cyber security

Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has called for creating a common global standard to counter cyber threats and said that Russia is ready to share its experience and knowledge in this area with other countries and advocates equality in this area.

Speaking at the International Cybersecurity Congress, Medvedev referred to the position of some countries that are reluctant to interact with Moscow on cyber security because of their low confidence towards Russia. 

"This is a strange, if not dangerous, position that pushes all of us to the periphery of international relations to the state we were in, perhaps, at the end of the 19th century," he stressed. 

"Therefore, it is necessary to really develop global standards of security, especially since crimes that are committed using the Internet, have no boundaries," TASS cited Medvedev as saying.

Russia's Prime Minister expressed hope that all countries will come to this understanding,
