According to Minister of the Interior Andres Anvelt (SDE), the cooperation of governments and Internet companies has so far been efficient and substantially reduced the volume of terrorist and extremist content online.

“The meetings with representatives of the Internet giants are a good sign of a new level of trust and cooperation between the public and private sectors,” Anvelt was quoted by spokespeople as saying after his meetings with representatives of Silicon Valley and San Francisco tech companies.

“The spread of terrorist and extremist content is a danger to all of us, but a complete ban and restriction is definitely not the solution, because we value Internet freedom, and they value keeping their customers. The solution is the operative removal of content that poses a threat to security, and restricting access to it,” Anvelt added.

Anvelt with representatives of Internet companies about the steps taken so far in the fight against terrorism, as well as what could be done in the future. The meeting took place at the initiative of the European commissioner for migration, home affairs and citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos, as a preparation for the third European Union Internet Forum set to take place in December this year.

The aim of the forum is to stop the abuse of the Internet by international terrorist groups. To stop the spread of terrorist and extremist content, the EU is working with Google, Facebook, and Twitter, whose representatives were also present at the meeting.
