The UN should create a special entity for international cooperation on the legal issues of Internet control, Russian Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolai Nikiforov said on Twitter Wednesday.

MOSCOW, April 23 (RIA Novosti) – The UN should create a special entity for international cooperation on the legal issues of Internet control, Russian Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolai Nikiforov said on Twitter Wednesday.

“The current model of Internet control is going through a serious crisis, close international cooperation is necessary with the state playing the guiding role. We share the opinion that the model of Internet control should be multifaceted, but all parties have to agree on their roles,” Nikiforov wrote.

The minister added that it is necessary to determine the role of government in controlling the Internet, because it is the state that is the subject of international law.

“We are concerned about the poor coordination between international, regional and national efforts on Internet control. In order to solve the above mentioned problems in the UN framework, a special structure might be created to formulate the international legal norms,” Nikiforov added.

According to him, the International Telecommunication Union could fulfill such a role.
