LUANDA, November 24. /TASS/. Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev has said it is necessary to counter terrorist financing and the use of media and information technologies by militants. "It is necessary to put a solid barrier to terrorist financing and the use of media and information technologies for the benefit of terrorist activity, thereby ensuring international information security," he told reporters following his visit to Angola.
Patrushev also noted that no sovereign country could combat international terrorism single-handed, so it is necessary to join forces of the international community. He added that cooperation in this format would be instrumental in dealing with other threats, including illegal immigration and piracy.
The secretary of the Russian Security Council held talks in Luanda with Angola’s Minister of State Helder Vieira Dias. Patrushev noted that the two sides "had held fruitful consultations and exchanged views on the situation in the world and in the region." We are glad that we see eye-to-eye on these issues," he said.
According to Patrushev, to boost cooperation between Russia and Angola it is necessary to intensify the exchange of information at the level of the Security Councils of the two countries and other government agencies. "This must be done right now to effectively counter new challenges and threats," he said.
Earlier reports said that after the end of the visit Patrushev would hold talks in South Africa. The secretary of the Russian Security Council is making a trip to Angola and South Africa under the instruction of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
