MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu warned on Wednesday about the danger of terrorists getting their hands on weapons of mass destruction and chemical agents.

"Terrorists must not gain access to weapons of mass destruction and chemical agents," the minister told the Seventh Moscow Conference on International Security, held on April 4-5.

He said militants from the Islamic State - a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia - are already using drones, which means that no country can feel safe.

Shoigu pointed out that terrorists from Syria and Iraq are now moving to other regions, and tensions are mounting in Africa, Europe. Furthermore, jihadists are also returning to Asia, he added.

"Cross-border crimes are on the rise, and breeding grounds are created across the globe for extremist and separatist movements. Terrorist cells are being set up in many regions worldwide, including in Southeast Asia," the defense minister added.
