US Lawmakers to fight Russia, China for Control of Internet

Agency News

Washington, Jan 25: Newly-proposed legislation if passed would call on the State Department to develop policies for countering adversaries such as Russia and China in a fight to control the cyber domain, the two heads of the House Foreign Affairs committee said in a press release.

"The Cyber Diplomacy Act of 2019… creates a US international cyber policy that advances democratic principles and rejects attempts by Russia and China to extort more control and censorship over the internet," Congressmen Michael McCaul and Eliot Engel said after introducing the bill on Thursday.
