Belarus president compares cyberterrorism to nuclear weapons

MINSK, 31 October (BelTA) – Cyberterrorism will become as dangerous as nuclear weapons in the not too distant future. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as a meeting of the Core Group of the Munich Security Conference opened in Minsk on 31 October, BelTA has learned.

The head of state reminded that an international high-level conference on fighting terrorism in the digital age had taken place in Minsk under the OSCE aegis three weeks before. Participants of the conference agreed that only through unity one can successfully counteract cyberterrorism and other modern challenges and threats. “We will understand literally in a year or two that cyberterrorism is as dangerous as nuclear weapons,” Alexander Lukashenko is convinced.

“Belarus is ready to host a joint UN-OSCE conference on fighting terrorism and a summit on fighting cybercrime,” said Alexander Lukashenko.

Alexander Lukashenko suggested resuming the work of the group of Wise Mean made of prominent politicians and analysts under the OSCE aegis. “Their job would be to work out strategic recommendations on general security matters in the Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian spaces,” explained the Belarus president.
