BRUSSELS, May 19. /TASS/. Fight against terrorism was among the focal points at a session of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after the session.
"A major document was adopted - a declaration on combatting terrorism and extremism. It lays additional principles of joint work of all of us in this direction," Lavrov said.
"An action plan for the implementation of this declaration was approved," he added.
He also mentioned as a major step in anti-terrorist fight the approval of the protocol to the Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism, intended to mobilize efforts against a new threat of foreign terrorist fighters.
"They are recruited in countries of the European continent so that they do their miry business in the Middle East and in North Africa within the context of conflicts in Syria, Libya and other countries of the region," the top Russian diplomat said.
"And then they return home, posing a major threat to security of our states," he continued.
