MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. The Communications and Mass Media Ministry is working to restore access of Russian computer security company Kaspersky Lab to Chinese tenders for state purchases, Minister Nikolay Nikiforov said Thursday at the Russian Internet Week event.
“We are tackling the matter directly with our Chinese colleagues. We discuss it at every meeting and we are confident that this way or another we will look for a compromise on Kaspersky Lab’s work on the state entities market in China. We will do everything possible to find the compromise,” Nikiforov said.
In August, China suspended purchases of software from Kaspersky Lab for its central government bodies. Beijing then increased scrutiny of foreign companies in the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations of a National Security Agency spying program and the indictments of five Chinese military officers for allegedly stealing corporate secrets.
The Russian minister said that governments should focus on progress, exports and development, instead of bans, limitations and barriers for IT products.
Kaspersky Lab has been working on the Chinese market since 2003.
