Azerbaijan may help Nepal to solve cybersecurity issues - CEO of AIDIA

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Dec. 1

By Sadraddin Aghjayev - Trend:

Cybersecurity problems in Nepal can be solved in cooperation with Azerbaijani ASAN Service centers, Founder and CEO of the Asian Institute of Diplomacy and International Relations (AIDIA) Sunil Khatri Chhetri told Trend on Dec. 1.

According to Khatri Chhetri, Nepal will be very glad to become a partner of Azerbaijan in this direction.

"Our countries have very good relations. Our prime minister [Sher Bahadur Deuba] took part in the Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement. We have strong diplomatic and interpersonal ties. I visited Azerbaijan more than five times. Hopefully, we’ll have great cooperation with Azerbaijan in terms of ensuring cyber security of our country," he said.

The CEO of AIDIA noted that in 2019, hackers intruded on the banking system of Nepal and stole millions of dollars.

“This testifies to low level of cybersecurity. The government of Nepal is now doing very serious efforts on this issue. We want to use a set of solutions. For example, Nepal Telecom currently develops cybersecurity programs and solutions to protect data within the country. I believe in greater efficiency of work in this direction together with the structures of Azerbaijan," he stressed.
