MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. No additional anti-terror laws are needed in Russia, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the international committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, said on Monday after a meeting of the international defense committees.
He made this comment at the meeting that was attended also by representatives of Russia’s law enforcement agencies focused on the current states of the Russian anti-terror legislation. "Following this meeting I can make a conclusion that the legislative backing of this work and the law enforcement practice are sufficient and efficient and needs no additional reaction from the parliament," he said.
The Russian lawmaker noted that efforts to build a global anti-terror security system were failing due to the position of a number of countries which "seek to artificially politicize" these issues. Such position, in his words, created extra obstacles "lowering the efficiency of this work and facilitating further expansion of terrorist organizations."
The Russian lawmaker stressed that national parliaments were called to make their contribution to anti-terror efforts "through improving domestic laws and exerting pressure on their countries’ governments to step over foreign policy differences" for the sake of common anti-terror struggle.
