John Kerry: Cyberdefense a major part of Asian security

Jay Alabaster | April 15, 2013
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called defending against cyberattacks a major part of maintaining security in Asia, and said Washington is forming working groups with China and Japan to address the issue.

Kerry pointed out that Japanese leaders seeking to rebuild the country's northeast coast, much of which is still in shambles two years after being devastated by a major earthquake and tsunami, have turned to the U.S. for help and advice. But he also said the U.S. can learn from its main Pacific ally in environmental issues.

"It takes the average Japanese household about three years to use as much energy as an American household uses in just one year. We have to do better," he said.
