BAKU, July 01. /ITAR-TASS/. The Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has called for additional measures aimed at tackling the growing threat of terrorism, linked with the return of militants from conflict zones and intensified activity of neo-Nazis, says a resolution on combating terrorism that was adopted in the Azerbaijani capital on Tuesday by the participants in the 23rd annual session of the OSCE PA.

The document, in particular, proposes to consider the “possibility of taking additional measures to intensify the OSCE activity aimed at fighting the threats of terrorism and radicalization linked with the return of foreign terrorists-militants from armed conflict zones to permanent residence places, as well as in connection with intensified activity of ultranationalist and neo-Nazi movements.”

The resolution contains a call on the member states to take all the measures for the prevention of the use of information and communication technology for terrorist purposes, including the instigation, planning, preparation, financing or commission of terrorist acts, at the same time ensuring the compliance of these measures with the national legislation, international law and political commitments previously assumed within the OSCE.

The document says it is necessary to continue the practice of annual OSCE conferences on combating terrorism.
