MOSCOW, March 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s organizers of the conference on fighting radicalization of the society were disappointed to receive last-minute refusals from counterparts to participate in the meeting, Russia’s foreign ministry says in its statement.
By having done so “the counterparts refrained from discussing most important joint anti-terror objectives.”
“Besides, the position has proven to be incorrect as the conference discussed rather fruitfully the topic of fascist radicalism in reference with the events in Ukraine,” the foreign ministry said. The discussion “could have helped the western countries and the EU see objective reasons and conditions of the political and public processes developing in Ukraine.”
However, the Russian party does not rule out it may present the conference results to the G8 experts and authorities, so that in future they may be used as benchmarks for development of the international anti-terrorist cooperation.
The event’s participants stressed “necessary joint measures to stop the current wide and practically free from any control use of the Internet information space for terrorist and extremist purposes.”
The participants “presented views in favor of mobilization of state and off-state opportunities for energy and effective fighting radical provocations in the information space, which the extremist minority has been undertaking.”
Two days of the conference featured interesting discussions on uniting efforts from governments and civil societies to fight the spread of terrorist and extremist ideology, to overcome the danger of further radicalization of social and political moods.
The conference’s foreign participants represented leaders of counter-terrorism departments at key international organizations — the UN, OSCE, the European Council and the Shanghai Cooperation Agreement.
