MOSCOW, OCTOBER 16, 2015. PIR PRESS – “Together China, Russia and the US as the participants of the international dialogue in the field of cybersecurity have such force and wield such influence that any agreement among them or any established norm could become a precedent for all of the international community. They form a minimum critical group that could change the international legal regime of conduct in cyberspace, and influence the situation in international cybersecurity” – Oleg Demidov, PIR Center consultant and a member of the Research Advisory Network under the Global Commission on Internet Governance.

On September 29, 2015, a regular meeting of the Trialogue Club International on “Russia-China-United States: Setting the Global Rules of the Game in Cyberspace” took place. The keynote speaker was Oleg Demidov, PIR Center consultant and a member of the Research Advisory Network under the Global Commission on Internet Governance. Diplomats from Canada, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Philippines, and Switzerland, as well as representatives of NATO Information Office in Moscow, Institute of World Economy and International Relations at the Russian Academy of Sciences, Financial Times newspaper, the International Union of Veterans of Nuclear Energy and Industry and other experts took part at the meeting. The Director of PIR Center Albert Zulkharneev moderated the meeting.

Oleg Demidov briefly spoke on the current state of negotiations in the field of rules of conduct on the cyberspace for the states. “Сontrasted with the active bilateral negotiations and agreements between Russia–China, Russia–US, US–China, there is neither international legal mechanism, nor any platform that would allow these countries to negotiate their cyber policies in tripartite format” – PIR Center’s consultant underlined.

At the same time, a possible agreement between Beijing, Moscow and Washington would be crucial for the cyberspace. “Together China, Russia and the US as the participants of the international dialogue in the field of cybersecurity have such force and wield such influence that any agreement among them or any established norm could become a precedent for all of the international community. They form a minimum critical group that could change the international legal regime of conduct in cyberspace, and influence the situation in international cybersecurity” – Oleg Demidov concluded.
