The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the United States are not ready to cooperate in the field of cyber security, said the former mayor of New York, US cybersecurity adviser Rudy Giuliani.

His remark came Tuesday at the III International Forum of the Eurasian Partnership (IEPF) held in Yerevan.

Asked  by Chair of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), Tigran Sargsyan, what opportunities exist for cooperation between the Eurasian Economic Union and the United States in ensuring cybersecurity, Giuliani noted: “I cannot say whether they exist or not. However, I do not see any risks in sharing secrets on cybersecurity.”

According to him, cybercrime will spread further and further throughout the world, and it is necessary to understand that it is impossible to achieve the 100% result in the fight against it. As far as information is limited and secure, there will always be a brilliant technology expert who can crack all levels of protection used, he added.

As reported earlier, the Eurasian Week annual business forum of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) has gotten underway Monday in Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia.

The event will bring together sectoral deputy PMs and ministers of the governments of EAEU member and partner countries, as well as the heads state-owned corporations and leading businesses.

The Eurasian Week will conclude on Wednesday.
