Lavrov: West blocks Russia’s initiatives to regulate Internet

The development of generally established rules for regulating the Internet is hardly possible in the near future, and the Western countries are blocking Russia’s initiatives, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"There have been negotiations in the International Telecommunication Union for years, if not decades, on how to operate the Internet so that not to offend anyone," Lavrov said, speaking at the conference 'International Cooperation in a Troubled Word,' organized by the Valdai Discussion Club in partnership with the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam.

"There is no result, and there won’t be any - I’m sure about it - in the near future, for obvious reasons," the Russian top diplomat reiterated that earlier Russia’s initiatives approved by the UN General Assembly were not supported by almost all Western countries.
