MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. The head of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), Alexander Bortnikov, has called for boosting cooperation with the special services of those countries where emissaries of the Islamic State (IS) extremist group create their camps and bases.
The IS has stepped up its activity and is now the center of international terrorism, Bortnikov said at the meeting on occasion of the 15th anniversary since the establishment of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) Anti-Terrorism Center.
"There is a need to develop and strengthen cooperation of the Anti-Terrorism Center with international partners, first of all with the relevant authorities of countries on the territory of which the IS emissaries and its affiliated terrorist groups create their camps and supply bases and establish new schemes of sending gunmen and weapons," Bortnikov said.
Bortnikov called to further boost and use the potential of the Center as a fruitful platform in the CIS framework and strengthen cooperation with other collective security bodies on the joint space.
"The Anti-Terrorism Center, which was originally devised as a consolidated response to the growing challenges of international terrorism and transnational organized crime by now has turned into a complex mechanism allowing not only to counter the mentioned threats but also to curb infringement of the constitutional framework in the Commonwealth countries," he stressed.
