U.S. And China To Hold Talks On Controlling Internet
Monday June 3, 2013
In response to a reported wave of cybertattacks, the United States and China will be holding talks on how the two countries can create new rules for regulating the internet. The talks will be ongoing and are set to start in July.
The United States and China have agreed to hold regular, high-level talks on how to set standards of behavior for cybersecurity and commercial espionage, the first diplomatic effort to defuse the tensions over what the United States says is a daily barrage of computer break-ins and theft of corporate and government secrets.
The talks will begin in July. Next Friday, President Obama and President Xi Jinping of China, who took office this spring, are scheduled to hold an unusual, informal summit meeting in Rancho Mirage, Calif., that could set the tone for their relationship and help them confront chronic tensions like the nuclear threat from North Korea.
