ST. PETERSBURG, March 26. /TASS/. Speaker of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Vyacheslav Volodin said on Sunday it would be useful if parliamentary assemblies of the Council of Europe (PACE) and of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) jointly discuss such topical problems as terrorism and migration policies.
At a meeting with visiting PACE President Pedro Agramunt on the sidelines of a meeting of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly, Volodin thanked the European politician for his interest to the problems addressed by the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly.
"These are common problems, especially those related to anti-terrorism efforts," he said, adding that anti-terrorism efforts could be efficient only when they are consolidated. "These are also issues of migration policies which are topical for both us and PACE, and efforts against drug trafficking."
"Such dialogue between the parliamentary assemblies would be useful for the resolution of the problems that are of concern for people living in our countries and lawmakers must have a say on these matters," Volodin noted.
