CHENGDU /China/, November 13. /TASS/. Russia plans to expand cooperation in the sphere of civil protection within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), in particular, create within the organisation the systems of integrated monitoring, surveillance and laboratory control of hazardous factors and phenomena, Russian Emergency Situations Minister Vladimir Puchkov said on Friday.
"Russia is ready within the SCO framework to implement projects aimed at ensuring the population’s safety, as well as to support the corresponding national projects of the SCO member states," Puchkov said at the 8th meeting of the heads of the CSO states’ emergency management departments.
"I invite you, dear colleagues, to continue the work for the implementation of humanitarian projects in the SCO space based on the information technology, software and hardware systems and procedural framework of Russia and the SCO member countries," he said.
Puchkov said that Russia put forward the initiative on the creation and development of regional control centres, coordinating humanitarian activity and emergency response efforts and proposed to the meeting participants to continue the work on the development of such centres in the SCO space.
"The establishment of a network of such centres is one of the key factors for the creation of a multilateral international mechanism for the prevention of disasters and overcoming the consequences of natural and man-made disasters," said the Russian minister.
