MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has pointed to the need for close coordination of special services’ activities for effective fight against international terrorism and extremism.
"Close coordination of special services’ work is necessary to combat international terrorism and extremism effectively and tackle other issues related to ensuring peace and security," he noted in a message of greetings to the participants in the XIV session of the Meeting of the heads of security agencies and intelligence services of the CIS member-countries on intelligence activity issues posted on the Kremlin’s website on Wednesday. "Well-coordinated interaction and timely exchange of intelligence and analytical information will make it possible (for us) to successfully counter modern challenges in the Commonwealth space."
The head of state recalled that an agreement on the basic principles of cooperation between the intelligence services of the CIS member-countries had been signed 25 years ago. "Since then, your partnership has become stable and fruitful confirming de facto its relevance and importance," the president added.
Putin voiced confidence that the participants in the meeting will discuss in detail the key issues and outline the most promising areas of cooperation.
