Russia Wants A Deal With The US On Cyber Security

After talks with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Moscow and Washington could agree on the rules of behavior in the fields of strategic stability, cyber security and regional conflicts.

Russia hopes to agree co-operation on cyber security in a bilateral format with the US said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the Moscow Conference on International Security on Thursday 24th June. "We expect, of course, that our cooperation on cyber security will continue through bilateral channels, and we would like to also see productive dialogue on cyber security issues with the US side, as was discussed at the Geneva summit," he said.

The Russian government is concerned over "the plans of certain states to militarise the Internet and unleash a cyber arms race there... For our part, we are actively working on adopting a code of responsible behavior of states in the global information space, given the interests of each country in the field of military and political security. Simultaneously, we are promoting the project of a universal convention on combating cyber crimes," Lavrov said.

Relations between the US and Russia have warmed up  after a summit in Switzerland, following which they have announced  that they "will embark together on an integrated bilateral Strategic Stability Dialogue in the near future that will be deliberate and robust." 

Both these Russian initiatives have received support at the latest session of the UN General Assembly, and "on both tracks special negotiating mechanisms were set up, which will consider these two crucial projects with the participation of all states". 

Biden and Vladimir Putin sought to cool tensions in the combustible US-Russian relationship at their first summit in Geneva, but Biden drew a red line at cyber attacks, declaring them "off limits." The two leaders emerged in mostly positive moods after more than three hours of talks, including two hours alone with just the Russian foreign minister and US Secretary of State.
Both Presidents have subsequently praised their talks in Geneva.
