MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev noted the need to regulate at the global level issues linked to the use of new technologies in the military sphere.
"We believe that it is necessary to activate the powers of the global community, chiefly at the UN venue, as quickly as possible to develop a comprehensive regulatory framework that would prevent the use of the specified [new] technologies for undermining national and international security," Patrushev stressed at the opening ceremony for the Moscow Conference on International Security.
"Russia is ready to take active part in this process," he affirmed.
The Security Council secretary said that modern technologies make it possible to create attack instruments with the use of artificial intelligence, genetics and synthetic biological agents.
"They are often as deadly as weapons of mass destruction," he noted.
