MOSCOW, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) considers it necessary to work out a common approach towards fighting terrorist organisations, CSTO Secretary-General Nikolai Bordyuzha said at a meeting with director of the Executive Committee of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation’s Regional Counterterrorist Structure (SCO RCTS), Zhang Xingeng, on Monday.
The organisations should join efforts to resolve common issues, including further development of the situation in Afghanistan. “We’re concerned about the fact if Islamist numerous armed units can pose a threat to the states’ security,” Bordyuzha said.
To this end, a proposal was put forth to finalise a new draft list of organisations, which are recognised terrorist and extremist. “I think that it would be expedient to work out common approaches towards countering the activity of terrorist and extremist organisations in the CSTO and SCO responsibility zones,” the CSTO secretary-general said.
CSTO spokesman Vladimir Zainetdinov told Itar-Tass that during the meeting, “the parties exchanged views on the situation in the joint responsibility areas and proposed to step up further cooperation to fight international terrorism, extremism, drug trafficking, weapons contraband and trans-border crime, as well as the use of the Internet for criminal purposes.”
The meeting also focused on the exchange of information between the CSTO Secretariat and the SCO RCTS in compliance with the protocol on cooperation that had been signed on June 14, 2011.
