Statement of Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information and NTIA Administrator Lawrence E. Strickling on the European Commission statement on Internet governance:

“The U.S. government welcomes the strong and continued commitment of the European Commission to the multistakeholder model of Internet governance.  We will work with the Commission and other Internet stakeholders to make multistakeholder governance more inclusive, especially to support the engagement of countries in the developing world.  We have long encouraged the further globalization of ICANN as reflected in our work the last five years to improve the accountability and transparency of ICANN to all nations and stakeholders.”
