MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Work on making the list of terrorist organizations operating on the territory of Syria has almost been completed, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said on Monday.
"The list of terrorist organizations operating in Syria has almost been coordinated," Syromolotov said.
The work on the list is complicated by the fact that terrorist organizations are rapidly changing their "coloration" by disguising as opposition groups, he added.
The deputy foreign minister also noted the problem of foreign terrorists. "In order to solve this problem, the world should unite and do three simple things," Syromolotov said.
"Firstly, it is necessary to establish comprehensive exchange of information on terrorists and create a joint international database available for any country," he explained. Work on creating such database in Russia started 8-9 years ago, he said adding that the database is supervised by the National Anti-Terrorism Committee. "If all such databases are united, we will get a necessary result," he said.
Secondly, it is important to control routes of movements of terrorists that do not always lay directly to the Middle East, in particular to Syria. Another route through China and Indonesia is being actively now as well, the diplomat noted.
Thirdly, the procedure of extraditing terrorists from third countries should be simplified because the existing mechanism is "rather long and very complicated," he concluded.
