MOSCOW, November 21, 4:56 /ITAR-TASS/. Security services of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) will discuss in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on Wednesday schemes of cooperation in case crisis situations emerge during the pullout of NATO forces from Afghanistan in 2014, sources from the press bureau of the CIS Antiterrorism Centre told Tass on Thursday.
“Today, the CIS Antiterrorism Centre holds its third regional expert consultations with participation of representatives from practically all branches of security agencies, secret services, border departments and internal affairs bodies of the CIS member countries,” its sources said. They will look into scenarios of cooperation “in case of crisis situations against the background of the withdrawal of International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) troops from Afghanistan in 2014,” they said.
Security and law enforcement officers, as well as special services from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan will take part.
“Experts will look into possible negative scenarios in the development of the situation in the region after the withdrawal of NATO’s coalition forces from Afghanistan, will analyze possible negative aftermath and risks for the countries of the Central Asian region bordering on Afghanistan after the level of ISAF presence in that region becomes lower,” the sources said.
After that, offers will be made on collective response to potential threats of terrorist and extremist nature.
