KAZAN, June 5 (Itar-Tass) - Aside from Al-Qaeda the threat of terrorism emanates from some organizations operating on the Afghan-Pakistani zone, Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) chief Alexander Bortnikov told the meeting of security services chiefs and law enforcers from partner-states of Russia’s FSB.
“At present, in our opinion the problem of internationalization of terrorism becomes most pressing,” he said. “International terrorist organizations, first of all Al-Qaeda, and its affiliates try to get use of tensions in social and political situations in some regions of the world in order to resolve their strategic tasks.”
“Committing heinous terror acts and inspiring street riots on ethnic and confessional grounds radical Islamists make attempts to destabilize the situation in separate states,” Bortnikov said. At the same time “they want to turn local conflicts into religion-based ones, master methods of manipulating public opinions with the focus on representatives of radical religious trends, actively recruit new accomplices and militants and upgrade tactics of counteraction to law enforcers and methods of subversive activities.”
“Aside from Al-Qaeda the international organizations operating in the Afghan-Pakistani zone - the Taliban movement, Islamic Jihad - Mojaheds' Jamaat and the Islamic Party of Turkestan - pose a serious threat,” he said.
Bortnikov noted that the terror acts committed recently in different parts of the world “clearly demonstrated that no country can secure itself against such criminal manifestations, while special services and law enforcement bodies should work to raise the level of interaction and coordination to successfully counteract aggressive plans of terrorists.”
He said the main task of the meeting is to exchange opinions on the international situation in the context of the growing threat of terrorism and to coordinate positions on key areas of counteraction to security challenges of countries.
