Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump had agreed to establish a bilateral working group on cybersecurity, while speaking to journalists at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Friday.

“Cybersecurity. For obvious reasons, a lot of attention is paid to it,” Lavrov stated. “The presidents agreed that this sphere is becoming increasingly risky, if you want, threats are being born there, including terrorist threats, threats in other areas of organised crime and threats to the normal functioning of societies,” Russia’s top diplomat added.

Lavrov went on to say, “it is agreed that all these issues in the complex, including the fight against terrorism, combating organised crime, with hacking in all its forms, will become the subject of Russian-American interaction. To this end, a joint bilateral working group will be established.”
