MOSCOW, December 2 /TASS/. The Russian Security Council considers using Islamic clergymen and social networks for waging a counterpropaganda campaign against recruitment of young people by terrorists. That subject was discussed at a sectoral meeting of the Russian Security Council scientific council on Wednesday, the Russian Security Council press service said.
"The participants in the meeting stressed the importance of exposing terrorist technologies and working out effective counter measures," the press service said.
"Methods to prevent the recruitment of citizens into the ranks of terrorist organisations, including a counterpropaganda campaign that will involve religious organisations uniting representatives of traditional Muslim clergy, public organisations, mass media and social networks were discussed," the Russian Security Council press service stressed.
Scientific and methodological approaches of counteraction to terrorist threats coming from Central Asia were also part of agenda at the sectoral meeting devoted to problems of neutralization of internal national security threats.
The discussion also dwelt on mechanisms of working out a coordinated approach of Central Asian states to counteracting the Islamic State (banned in Russia) and other international terrorist organisations.
