Brazil and India to devise Internet regulations to thwart US snooping

Beijing, Oct. 16 : Brazil and India have reportedly decided to work together to devise Internet regulations in a bid to protect online privacy from snooping by countries such as the US.


Foreign ministers of Brazil and India, Luiz Alberto Figueiredo and Salman Khurshid made the announcement after a meeting in the Brazilian capital Brasilia.

Khurshid said that online privacy is a matter of great concern to all democracies adding that there are several efforts to implement a platform to strengthen global security, but that platform should avoid any sort of restrictions, because the democratic system is very valuable.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has also condemned the alleged US' mass surveillance programmes and called for multilateral Internet governance that respects the principles of neutrality.

According to reports, although, the US maintains that its programmes are aimed at thwarting terrorism, its Brazilian targets, such as the Mines and Energy Ministry and state oil giant Petrobras claim that the US is also driven by economic motives.

Brazil and India have agreed to share information of Internet security strategies as India is one of the world's most advanced information technology sectors.
