US, China Agree To Set Up A Cyber HotlineUS, China Agree To Set Up A Cyber Hotline
Cooperative efforts between US, China on cybersecurity are moving slowly, with set-up of temporary email addresses listed as a key achievement.
June 16, 2016
A high-level US-China talk on cybercrime this week in Beijing appeared not to have made much headway going by the announcement that the two countries had set up temporary email addresses, reports The Wall Street Journal (WSJ). Efforts were underway, said officials, to set up permanent email communication.
This meeting was a follow-up on a series of cyber agreements in November between US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Progress on cybersecurity between US and China appear doubtful, say analysts, as the two are still figuring out how to go about it with US officials implying China is not serious about doing anything but just attending talks, reports WSJ.
Officials of the two countries who met in Beijing agreed to setting up a cyber hotline, an idea floated in the November meeting, and to hold seminars on network security and misuse of technology for terrorist activities. A series of separate talks are also being held between the two over cyberspace laws and rules, says WSJ.
