NATO denounced the wave of cyberattacks registered in European countries and, faced with this, demanded that China act responsibly and in accordance with its international commitments.
“We condemn malicious cyber activity that seeks to destabilize and damage Euro-Atlantic security and affect the daily lives of our citizens,” the Atlantic Council, NATO’s highest executive body, said in a statement.
The allies lament the attacks that affect Microsoft’s server, which have been denounced by both the European Union and the United States, undermine “security, trust and stability in cyberspace.”
Without wanting to point directly at Beijing, as if the US and Canadian authorities did, NATO asked China to fulfilling its international commitments and to act responsibly in the digital space.
“We reiterate our willingness to maintain a constructive dialogue with China based on interests and areas of relevance to the Alliance, including cyber threats,” said the Atlantic Alliance, after recalling that its defensive mandate includes deploying the means to defend against threats in the digital spectrum.
