MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma and Federation Council have passed a document at a joint session on Friday, in which they spoke out in favor of toughening criminal liability for terrorist crimes and boosting international cooperation in combating terrorism.
They supported measures taken by the Russian president "to confront the terrorist threat in Russia and beyond, including Russia’s military operation in Syria" and pointed to the legitimacy and feasibility of the proposal of the supreme commander "to apply Article 51 of the UN Charter giving countries the right to self-defense."
The participants in the session pointed to the need "to establish broad international cooperation with all countries without exception as well as with the institutions and agencies expressing readiness for such cooperation." The aim is "to initiate the appropriate decisions in international parliamentary organizations, to promote the formation of effective international institutions to curb the activities of international terrorist groups with the unconditional central role of the United Nations and its Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy in this process."
