US ready to share cyberwarfare capabilities with NATO allies

Washington is ready to use its cyberwarfare capabilities to counter alleged Russian cyberattacks in Europe and elsewhere in the world if asked to do so by its NATO partners, Katie Wheelbarger, US deputy assistant defense secretary for international security affairs, told reporters while traveling to a meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels, Sputnik reported citing AP.

She added, however, that while working to strengthen the capacity of its allies and partners, the US will maintain control over its personnel and capabilities.

Defense Secretary James Mattis is expected to make an announcement to this effect when he meets his NATO counterparts on Wednesday and Thursday.
