MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. New approaches to ensuring national security are needed in the conditions of fight among countries for resources and access to markets, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev said on Monday.
"Disagreements are growing over uneven global development, expanding gas between welfare levels in different countries, fighting for resources, access to markets, control over transport arteries," Patrushev told the session of Security Council’s scientific council. "In such conditions, new approaches of comprehensive interconnected nature are needed to ensuring national security," he added.
Patrushev noted that Russia’s foreign and domestic policy causes counteractions from several Western countries that strive for preserving their dominance in global affairs. "The policy of deterring Russia which is carried out by them, envisages political, economic, military and informational pressure," the official said.
Among reports read out at the session were "Russia in modern world: threats, opportunities, prospects"; "Challenges and threats for social-economic development of the Russian Federation in modern conditions"; "On fighting against extremism and terrorism in the interests of ensuring regional and international security." Other reports were also discussed focusing on topics of effect of migration processes on regional and international security, as well as issues of forming the system of international informational security.
During discussions, proposals were coordinated on developing scientific and methodological approaches to resolving the most complicated problems of international security.
Moreover, the results of the scientific council’s work in 2015 were discussed.
In the sphere of international agenda, the session focused on issues of ensuring Russia’s national interests in the Asia-Pacific Region in the conditions of implementation of the active phase of US strategic shift to this region. The situation in the Middle East and North Africa was considered, along with threats to territorial integrity of countries and geostrategic prospects of the region. Emphasis was also made on developing promising directions of integration processes in CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and their possible influence on Russia’s sustainable development.
