MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. A senior Russian parliamentarian says international parliamentary agencies, notably the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, should restore contacts with Russian lawmakers suspended over Ukraine so experience can be shared on action against terrorism.
Head of Russia's upper house Defense Committee Viktor Ozerov said efforts should be combined not only among security services but equally at the parliamentary level.
He urged restoration of "associated membership of the delegation from the Federation Council and the State Duma in the NATO Parliamentary Assembly and other organisations where Russia can and must share its experience on the fight against terrorism".
Ozerov said the Federation Council was working on an appeal to parliamentarians of the world, scheduled for debate at a plenary session of the upper house on Wednesday.
World parliaments will be urged to launch global strategy against terrorism, Deputy Speaker Ilyas Umakhanov said on Monday.
A draft appeal mooted at a Monday joint session of the committees for international affairs and defence is to urge parliamentarians globally to reject double standards, stop dividing states into good or bad and ally work at the legislative level "to develop global anti-terrorism strategy".
Head of the Federation Council International Affairs Committee Konstantin Kosachev said parliamentarians would urge their foreign colleagues to exert pressure on executive authorities so that they "brush aside foreign policy differences" and pool effort with Russia for action against international terrorism.
