NEW YORK, October 28 /TASS/. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) stands for coordination of efforts in fighting the terrorist threat under the UN supervision, SCO Secretary General Rashid Alimov told a UN Security Council meeting on Friday.
"We want to further expand cooperation with the United Nations in carrying out joint actions aimed at the implementation of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy. In this connection, the activities of the Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization become particularly important," Alimov said.
The SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure has made it possible to create and successfully test the mechanism of effective multilateral anti-terrorist cooperation and establish regular interaction and information exchange with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the United Nations Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee.
In 2011-2015, Alimov went on to say, the competent bodies of the SCO member states managed to prevent 20 terror attacks in the stage of preparation; thwart about 650 terror-related and extremist crimes; liquidate 440 terrorist training camps; eliminate about 1,700 members of international terrorist organizations, detain more than 2,700 members of illegal armed groups, accomplices and persons suspected of criminal activities, thanks to the coordinating role of the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure.
Six hundred arms dumps and ammunition caches were found, while more than 3,250 self-made explosive devices, about 10,000 weapons pieces, about 450,000 ammunitions, and more than 52 tonnes of explosives were confiscated. Measures were taken to prevent the internet use in pursuit of terrorist, separatist and extremist goals.
"In a bid to prevent the growing threat posed by terrorist rebels, the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure has worked out and is carrying out measures to expose the channels of moving people to regions of high terrorist activities with an aim of involving them in internal armed conflicts on the side of international terrorist organizations," Alimov stressed.
