ULAN-UDE, June 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Security Council head on Thursday warned about the dangers of bioterror attacks, saying that terrorists could get hold of biological weapons quite easily.
Speaking at an international meeting with senior security officials, Security Council secretary Nikolai Patrushev told journalists: "We have to state that technologies capable of triggering global disasters in the sphere of biological security are highly available today."
At the same time, Patrushev noted that no efficient legal framework existed for coordinated emergency response in that sphere. "There are new attempts to justify biological weapons on the grounds of the biocontainment theory," he said. "Under these conditions, a passive position only brings mankind to the edge."
Another important issue raised at the meeting was environmental security, Patrushev said, noting that the struggle for fresh water in the modern world could pose a serious challenge to international security. Participants agreed that it was inadmissible to use water as a tool of geopolitical influence, he said.
International information security was also high on the agenda. Patrushev said that security officials highlighted the need to develop a universal code of conduct for states in the media space.
