Reuters, WUZHEN, ChinaA “Cold War mentality” and “bully behavior” are hindering mutual trust in cyberspace, China’s propaganda chief said on Sunday at the start of the World Internet Conference in the eastern Chinese town of Wuzhen. “The Cold War thinking and zero sum game, this has stopped and hindered exchanges in cyberspace. Also, bully behavior in cyberspace has had a negative impact on mutual trust,” he said. “We need to respect each country’s approach to Internet development, governance, policy making and their rights to participate in international governance based on mutual trust,” he said. Beijing has traditionally used the three-day event organized by the Cyberspace Administration of China to promote its own ideology for global Internet governance and to defend its highly policed cyberspace.
