Wiranto Discusses About Cyber-Security With Russian Envoys

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Coordinating Minister of Political, Legal, and Security Affairs, Wiranto, revealed that the meeting taking place between himself and representatives of the Russian Federation Security Council was to discuss about cyber security and the threat of terrorism.

“We conducted bilateral meetings to discuss about matters of security, we had a broad discussion about anti-terror,” Wiranto said on Wednesday, March 22, 2017.

In fact, according to Wiranto, the Indonesia – Russia security collaboration been going on for a long time.

Indonesia continues to absorb the knowledge and experiences from nations that has strengthened their cyber security aspect. “Our new topic of discussion is the importance of cyber security and Russia has just that,” He said. “We’ve also established a cyber-security organization.”

Wiranto claims that Indonesia’s understanding of cyber-security is gradually getting better, following Indonesia’s visit to a number of countries. “Before with Russia, we also went to Australia, India, and Singapore to discuss about cyber-security,” Wiranto explains.

Even though Indonesia was offered main tools of defense systems, Wiranto said that such discussion hasn’t taken place with Russia. “The offer will always be on the table,” He said. “Not only from Russia, ambassadors from Eastern European countries have always offered their military equipments, it’s normal.”
