Why does America oppose a UN resolution that limits cyber-attacks?

The United States of America stands firmly in the face of any international resolution or project that limits and punishes the launch of cyber-attacks or technical and technological breakthroughs. Technology has become a major part for citizen, and a great wealth that equals his needs for the oil and gas, and relying on it completely, not partially, and with a comprehensive and undiminished. Citizens in any society use technology to complete their transactions and contact with institutions and companies, pay their bills and dues, monitor their bank accounts, transfer money and savings, etc. In the sense that technology and the Internet have become the basis of life for any society.


Therefore, most countries are trying to preserve the security and stability of this feature, which saves effort and money for state and the citizen.On this basis, several countries submitted a draft resolution to the United Nations to punish any party or entity that assaulted or infiltrated technological institutions in what is known as a cyber attack, for what is harmful to the ordinary citizen and his permanent and necessary needs that have become part of his life. The aforementioned project clashed with a strange position towards the United States, as it unequivocally rejected any collective decision in this regard, indicating its intention to continue piracy and attacks against multiple countries, institutions and entities. To evade condemnation, the United States demanded that the agreements in this regard are bilateral between the states, and not comprehensive, binding and public decisions, and it also refused to provide guarantees not to attack countries and launch cyber attacks to demonstrate that they are continuing to disrupt the technical and technological systems under the pretext of hitting military institutions And security for countries that are hostile to their policies or that stand on a dispute and disagreement with Washington, especially China, Venezuela and Iran. The gravity of the American position lies in President Donald Trump’s acquisition of the decision in this regard, and in detail the current President’s Resolution No. 13 and its title National Security Presidential Memorandum 13.In the event that this decision is issued by the American president, the American agencies will launch and paralyze digital and technical communications in any country, knowing that the former American president had the same decision, but under number 20 and the title of Presidential Policy Directive PPD20 and with less influence, that is, Obama in order to issue an order for cyberattack He needs to pass through several security and military agencies and government institutions, and in the end, President Obama may not. US hacking and electronic attacks on industrial installations have taken over media institutions and technology companies, and Washington created special units in 2013 to oversee these attacks, while the Secret Equation Group, which is suspected to be one of the largest piracy groups of the National Security Agency, is owned. These units transmit viruses to penetrate information security, causing damage equivalent to that of conventional military attacks, including disrupting part of energy networks, penetration of banking and stock systems, and even disrupting dams and installations. As Washington continues to try to justify and legislate its aggressive and harmful operations of people before institutions and governments, the American position confirms the US desire to continue illegal and internationally rejected piracy and espionage operations that are incompatible with international and humanitarian covenants.
