MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. A deputy head of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), Valery Domnin, has reported to the United Nations about the cooperation in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization outlawed in Russia.
Maj. Gen. Domnin, who led a working group of the Meeting of Heads of Special Services, Security Agencies and Law-Enforcement Organizations of foreign states-partners of the FSB, addressed the UN Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Committee in New York on Thursday.
The members of the committee were informed about the results of the work of the 14th meeting held in July 2015 in Russia’s Yaroslavl, to the northeast of Moscow, and its projects, the FSB public relations center told TASS.
"The representative of Russia’s FSB underlined the contribution of the forum to join efforts of the special services of the world in the fight against terrorist international, the Islamic State," the center said.
Special focus was made on jointly countering the main personnel resource of the IS, the terrorists who come from abroad. "This issue will be central in the agenda of the jubilee 15th meeting that is due to be held in July 2016 in St. Petersburg," the FSB said.
