Vietnam applauds the 132nd Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU-132)’s intention of adopting a resolution on cyber warfare – a serious threat to world peace and security, said National Assembly Vice Chairman Huynh Ngoc Son.

Son addressed a workshop themed “Parliaments in the prevention of cyber warfare’s threats to world peace and security” in Hanoi on January 28.

Speeches delivered at the event focused on discussing issues relating to information safety, network security and cyber warfare.

Participants proposed Vietnam ’s State agencies, international organisations and parliaments boost cooperation in combating cyber warfare, which has become a common concern of any nations and organisations.

They also gave opinions on the content of the cyber warfare resolution.

In Vietnam, in recent years, thousands of websites, including those belonging to State agencies, have been attacked intentionally, causing total losses of up to thousands of billion VND.

The 132nd Assembly of the IPU is scheduled to take place from March 28 to April 1 in Hanoi under the theme “Sustainable Development Goals: Turning Words into Actions”.-VNA
