Russia has proposed China to consider jointly creating a cloud storage system as well as to cooperate in the sphere of internet technologies.
“We need cooperation in the sphere of data storage, especially on internet exchange points that are located in Russia. Together we should also think about creation of cloud storage systems that will increase independence and invulnerability of national Internet segments,” Alexey Volin Deputy Minister of Telecom and Mass Communications was quoted as saying on Saturday by Sputnik News.
The deputy minister noted that the countries should also focus on cybersecurity issues. “We can do a lot together. It is necessary to ensure national Internet segment’s stability and invulnerability to external influence. We are ready to present a number of initiatives to our Chinese partners,” Volin said.
Russia has significant capabilities in the sphere of detecting and fighting viruses as well as detecting vulnerabilities in the information and communication systems.
Russia and China should boost cooperation in the sphere of fighting software piracy, he added.
The media forum, which is held as part of the Year of the Russian Media in China and the Year of the Chinese Media in Russia, started on Friday and will end on Saturday.
