The internet should be open, free, secure and trustworthy, according to the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Policy Coordination and Inter-Agency Affairs.

Thomas Gass said achieving this is one of the goals of the Internet Governance Forum, taking place in Istanbul from 2 to 5 September.

This annual Forum, which has met since 2006, convenes to discuss the internet’s sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development.

May Yacooub asked Mr Gass how connecting continents also contributes to enhancing internet governance.
