MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states “will take well-coordinated measures against those coming back to the CSTO states after fighting in armed conflicts on the side of international terrorist organizations,” said a statement the CSTO presidents signed upon results of the Tuesday summit.
“The terrorist threat has acquired a new dimension due to activity of foreign terrorists and stronger ties with trans-national organized crime,” the document said. “Terrorism is growing in numerical strength, ideologically and financially, playing an independent role in regional conflicts and using inter-confessional and inter-ethnic disagreements,” the document also noted.
The presidents stated that “a global danger of shaping a terrorist stronghold is emerging with its backbones being laid in the Middle East where groupings, including the so-called Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra stemming from Al-Qaeda structures are rampaging.”
“We are also concerned over a threat of spreading religious extremism from Afghanistan to the CSTO states,” the CSTO leaders said in the statement.
