ST. PETERSBURG, July 27. /TASS/. International terrorism has become a global threat and challenge for the whole civilization, and joint efforts of the international community are needed to fight against it, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.
In the address to participants in the 15th session of heads of special services, security agencies and law enforcement agencies in St. Petersburg, Putin said: "The session will focus on the fight against international terrorism that has become unprecedented in scale and in fact challenged the whole civilization. I will stress that decisive and coordinated actions of the whole international community are needed to effectively fight against this threat, and the main role will be played by special services and law enforcement agencies."
The president noted that in such conditions, special services should boost cooperation, exchange experience, use the most advanced methods of preventing and countering terrorist attacks, as well as distributing and propagating extremism, ideas of national, religious and social intolerance.
"I am confident that the session will focus on a broad range of issues and problems that require joint approaches with reliance on international law, while any proposals will contribute to strengthening security of our countries and international stability in general," he added.
