Kazakh President Calls For Global Cyber-Security Treaty At UN

Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbaev
Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbaev has called for "an international legal framework of the global information space" in order to deter increasingly frequent attacks by hackers against governments, businesses, and other institutions.

Speaking at the opening session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Nazarbaev expressed concern that "not a single international convention or multilateral treaty governs information processes."

The president also underlined the importance of greater dialogue between the Islamic world and the West, in a bid to promote harmony between peoples of different religions and ethnicities.
