MOSCOW, July 10. /TASS/. The situation around the issue of creating a Russian-us working group on cyber security would not affect the credibility of Russian President Vladimir Putin to his American counterpart, Donald Trump. This was stated to journalists the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the publication on Twitter of the White house that such a group could not be created.
“No one each other did not promise, and that was not my goal. The positive is that he was diagnosed (at the meeting of Putin and trump in Hamburg July 7 – approx. TASS) willingness to work in this direction”, – said the representative of the Kremlin. “Why it (the publication in Twitter trump – approx. TASS) should be reflected in trust to him by the President of the Russian Federation]? It can not be reflected”, – said Peskov.
Earlier, trump wrote on his Twitter, he did not believe in the possibility of establishing a bilateral group on cyber security, prospects for the formation of which he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed at the meeting in Hamburg. “The fact that President Putin and I discussed a group on cyber security, does not mean that I believe that it can happen. Can’t. But the ceasefire [in Syria] may [happen] happened!” – wrote trump.
“On the possibility of establishing such a group really discussed. Will it be created or not – it’s show time,” – said Peskov. Press Secretary recalled that Putin at the meeting gave Trump the necessary assurances and clarification that “any statements about a possible alleged intervention of official Russian institutions to cyber attacks during the election campaign in the United States are pure fiction and do not correspond to reality”. “And in this context, just said that the best form of terrorism is the interaction,” concluded Sands.
He once again drew the attention that Putin and trump agreed not directly on the formation structure, as “that will work on the creation of such a group.”
