MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Politicians should be ahead of technologies and should find solutions before the information technologies make up a "new reality" and threats related to it, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday in an interview with Renmin Ribao on the eve of his visit to China.
"Politics and politicians should be ahead of the technical progress and should find up-to-date solutions before the technologies make up a "new reality," he said.
The prime minister said the importance of the international information security can be hardly overestimated.
"Modern information and communication technologies are being used more often now for military and political confrontation," he said. "Besides, the Internet-based technologies are now used widely by terrorists and criminals. Many countries have been facing all these problems already. Those threats cannot be ignored."
On this background, he said, every day is growing the importance of uniting in order to prevent conflicts in the digital sphere. He mentioned as an example the rules, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation has been drafting, aimed at the international Internet security.
