MOSCOW, February 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Members of the Counter-Terrorism Committee of the UN Security Council praised highly the working group of experts that are working on anti-terrorist security of the Sochi Olympics, a source in the public relations centre of the Federal Security Service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Deputy Director of the Federal Security Service and head of the FSB international cooperation department Kuzyura gave an annual press briefing at a meeting of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee over the FSB efforts to build up international anti-terrorist cooperation.
“For the last seven years the press briefing remains a constructive type of dialogue between the conference of the chiefs of special services, security services and law enforcement agencies of the FSB partners in foreign countries and the Counter-Terrorism Committee of the UN Security Council,” the public relations centre noted.
“Briefly reviewing the last ten years of the conference, Kuzyura focused on covering the results of the tenth conference, which was held in July 2011 in St. Petersburg and brought together 93 anti-terrorist agencies from 63 countries, as well as four international organizations, namely the UN Security Council, the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure, the CIS Anti-Terrorist Centre and the European Union (the EU coordinator for the struggle against terrorism). Kuzyura reported on the development of the international database for the counteraction to terrorism,” the public relations centre reported.
“The Counter-Terrorism Committee of the UN Security Council praised highly the working group of experts, which was formed at the foresaid tenth conference, to develop the mechanism to share the information about the threats for the arrangement and holding of major international events, including the Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi in 2014,” the public relations centre said.
A next conference of the chiefs of the security services is scheduled in Moscow on October 3-4, 2012.
