CHERKESSK, April 11. /TASS/. Russia has embarked on fortifying its state border defenses in regions, where members of international terror organizations may penetrate into the country, Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said on Wednesday.

"A package of measures to tighten [Russia’s] border control in areas, where members of international extremist and terrorist organizations may infiltrate Russia’s territory has been adopted," the Security Council secretary said in a Cherkessk-hosted meeting devoted to national security issues concerning the North Caucasus.

He reiterated that on April 6, a Security Council meeting, headed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, studied the fundamentals of Russia’s state policy and measures to implement it.

"In order to avoid triggering terrorist activity in the North Caucasus and its spread to other regions of the Russian Federation it is necessary to resolutely quash any attempts by members of international terror organizations at infiltrating Russian territory, with special attention being paid to tightening control over the border with the flow of migration," Patrushev noted.
