MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. Russia’s new National Security Strategy until 2020 should exclude the country’s isolation from the outside world, the Russian Security Council said on Thursday.
The Security Council’s press service said that Russia’s new National Security Strategy draft was discussed at a meeting of the Council’s interdepartmental commission for strategic planning. "The meeting participants excluded the country’s isolation from the outside world, noting that an active foreign policy, the development of cooperation with other countries, attracting foreign investment and technology should complement our own efforts to modernize the economy and strengthen national security of the Russian Federation," the press service said.
Taking the floor at the meeting, Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev reminded the audience of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to adjust the National Security Strategy, ensuring the succession of the state policy in the sphere of national security, as well as the system of national interests and strategic national priorities.
The document is also intended to consolidate the efforts of the power bodies and civil society institutions in the creation of favorable internal and external conditions for achieving national priorities and countering new threats to Russia’s national interests. The strategic planning documents are adjusted every six years. The current Russian National Security Strategy had been approved in 2009.
