ULAN-UDE, June 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has underlined that discussions on international security are becoming more important in the year marking the 70th anniversary of Soviet victory over Nazi Germany, when countries refer to history and to their experiences of cooperation that counteracts common threats.
On Thursday Russian Security Council’s Secretary General Nikolai Patrushev read out the presidential greeting message, while opening the 6th international meeting of senior security officials.
"Your traditional meetings containing practical features are evidence of many countries’ aspiration to improve partnership on the broadest range of security problems, to exchange information and to enhance professional contacts," Putin said adding that "the importance of this interaction is especially topical and much-demanded in the year of the 70th anniversary of the victory in World War II when we are referring to history lessons and to experience of cooperation that counteracts common threats."
Putin pointed out in his address that the themes of Thursday meeting require balanced and consolidated attitudes.
"First, it is the fight against drug trafficking, terrorism and extremism along with the beefing up of biological, food and information security," he said.
The Russian president is certain that the conference will be constructive and fruitful and "will open new opportunities for efficient cooperation, for working out consolidated and collective approaches in the sphere of global and regional security.".
