NTIA Administrator, Lawrence E. Strickland, has said that claims the US is “abandoning the Internet” could not be further from the truth.

In a recent posting, Strickland said his agency’s decision to relinquish responsibility for DNS stewardship “in no way diminishes our commitment to preserving the Internet as an engine for economic growth and innovation”.

Strickland also said that any transition plan must meet the conditions of supporting the multistakeholder process and protecting the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet.
