ASTANA, November 19. /TASS/. The Russian General Prosecutor’s Office is doing its best to disrupt terrorist plots, Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika told reporters on the sidelines of a CIS anti-corruption session on Thursday.
"The possibility of terrorist attacks in the territory of the Commonwealth of Independent States does exist, of course, that is why the National Anti-Terrorism Committee has approved very tough and correct measures in my opinion," said Chaika, who takes part in a session of the CIS Interstate Council for Anti-Corruption Fight in the Kazakh capital Astana.
"The General Prosecutor’s Office fully shares this approach. Moreover, I have signed an instruction to local prosecutors to boost this work jointly with the agencies of the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service to prevent terrorist attacks," he added.
He also marked the importance of a seminar held in the Black Sea resort of Sochi where general prosecutors from 35 countries and leaders of eight international organizations had discussed action against terrorism and extremism, outlining a set of joint measures.
"Beyond doubt, everything is done to prevent aggressive activity of international terrorists on the CIS territory. We are also pooling effort with our partners abroad," Chaika pledged.
