SOCHI, November 10. /TASS/. Russian Prosecutor-General Yury Chaika has suggested limiting the grounds for refusal to cooperate on terrorism cases and to accept Russia’s proposals, including on creating international investigation teams.
"It is important to limit the grounds for refusal to cooperate, primarily on extremist and terrorist crimes," Chaika said. He was speaking at the 7th regional conference of the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) of Central and Eastern European and Central Asian countries dedicated to combating terrorism and violent extremism that opened on Tuesday in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
The prosecutor-general recalled that, during the 20th annual IAP conference in Zurich, he had come up with the initiative to include in the existing contractual obligations the provisions on simplifying cooperation, first and foremost, with the use of modern technologies, and making the activities of the international investigation teams regular.
"We - prosecutors - stay out of politics," Chaika said. "I think I will express the general opinion: no contemporary political processes, no cooling in international relations and their aggravation can overshadow the main thing - the desire of the world prosecutors’ community to discuss and offer the real ways to counter global threats facing our countries.".
