MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and members of Russia’s Security Council discussed the work of the anti-terror information center in Baghdad, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
"The meeting discussed the issues of improving the work related to the anti-terror information center in Baghdad," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"Current international issues were also discussed," he added.
The information and coordination center in Baghdad was established in October 2015. Russia, Iraq, Syria and Iran are taking part in the center’s work. The center aims to coordinate and exchange information on the issues of settling the situation in Syria.
Russia’s Security Council meeting also discussed domestic economic issues, specifically, the sale of state assets.
"In the context of a meeting held by the president earlier, the issue of privatization was discussed," the Kremlin spokesman said.
Putin held a meeting on privatization issues on February 1 when he told the government to determine specific parameters of state property sale this year.
The Russian president also emphasized the need to take into account the market situation and trends and ensure the maximum transparency of privatization deals while retaining state control of strategically important enterprises.
Putin said that the new owners of privatized enterprises should operate within Russia’s jurisdiction to avoid grey schemes and assets being taken to offshore destinations.
