India to Help NATO Encounter Cyber Threats from China

US-led NATO has sought stronger cooperation with India to counter growing cyber threats, particularly emanating from China.

Top NATO officials listed cyber security very high on the list of possible areas of cooperation, which included counter-terrorism, missile defense and anti-piracy operations.

“The cyber world does not recognise alignments. It only understands switches,” said a top NATO official during a briefing to visiting Indian journalists, while making a strong pitch for joint efforts to combat cyber threats.

The NATO official made this remark in context of India’s sensitivity against military alliances and its commitment to non-alignment. He suggested this could be a functional alignment in which both sides could give and take.
