The Law on Cyber Security conforms with the Constitution and does not hamper the implementation of international treaties to which Viet Nam is a party, Foreign Affairs Ministry Spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said on Thursday.

She made the remark at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ press conference in response to reporters’ questions about the recently adopted Law on Cyber Security.

She said the law was approved on Tuesday with the majority of votes after many rounds of discussions which took into account the opinions of National Assembly deputies and the public in a widespread and transparent manner.

Cyber security is an important issue that greatly affects national security, Hang said, noting that it has become of special concern for many countries and international and regional organisations in recent years.

Attacks on the cyber environment have grown fast in both form and scale and occurred across borders, seriously affecting the economic and political stability of each country, she said.

Efforts to improve security on the cyber environment still face numerous difficulties, especially due to the shortage of legal regulations and the capacity of ensuring cyber security.

This made the Law on Cyber Security critically necessary in the current context, the spokeswoman stressed.

The National Assembly earlier passed the law with an 86.86 percent majority. — VNS
