After the meeting, Vietnam and Russia issued a joint statement on their cooperation in safeguarding international information security. The leaders noted remarkable progresses in the development and use of information technology and communications (ITC), creating a global information environment that has increasingly impacted people’s daily life. They expressed their concern that modern ITC would be used to serve purposes that don’t benefit international security, stability and peace, and would become direct threats to citizens, societies and states.   The two sides consented to build and consolidate common trust, guarantee information security for major national security projects, and prevent the use of ITC for terrorism and other crimes.
