GROZNY, May 26. /TASS/. The 7th International Meeting of High Representatives for Security Issues ended in Chechnya on Wednesday.
The two-day conference focused on counteraction to extremism and terrorism, on regional and international security linked to migration processes and on shaping of the system of international information security.
"As in previous years, we will sum up results of the discussions in the foreseeable future in the form of a collection of materials in English and Russian and then will send them to all participants of the meeting," Russian Security Council’s Secretary Nikolay Patrushev said in closing remarks.
The Russian North Caucasian region of Chechnya had been picked up as the venue of the meeting not by accident, he said.
"This Russian region was the target of aggression of international terrorism which makes attempts to secure a foothold and to advance into our territory so as to establish a springboard for transferring activities into other countries," Patrushev said.
"The republic’s population had long been hostage of terrorists," he went on to say. "The successful struggle against terrorism and persistent social and economic policy enabled the republic to get back to peaceful, creative life. Participants of the forum have been provided with an opportunity to see the modern capital of a prosperous region of Russia, which residents received all the conditions for normal comfortable life."
Patrushev said that the population in the countries, participants in the conference in Chechnya, exceeded 70% of the entire population on Earth.
