China President Xi Jinping calls for cooperation on Internet regulation
BEIJING (AP) — Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for international cooperation in regulating Internet use, stepping up efforts to promote controls that have prompted criticism by human rights and free speech activists.
Xi, whose government operates extensive Internet monitoring and censorship, spoke at a conference Wednesday attended by executives of major global and Chinese online companies.
Xi called for the creation of a global “governance system” to reflect the “wishes and interests of all countries” and to help fight online crime and terrorism.
On the eve of the conference, the human rights group Amnesty International appealed to technology companies to resist Chinese efforts to control online governance in ways that might curb freedom of expression or exacerbate human rights abuses.
