MOSCOW, December 6. /TASS/. Member states of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) need to cooperate in order to cut channels through which terrorists get money, President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly Christine Muttonen told TASS.

"I think we can do quite a lot, first of all by improving national legal frameworks and do a lot of work concerning terrorism and antiterrorist issues," the official said in an interview with TASS. "One of the most important things is to work together, to collaborate, because for example we have to find measures on how we block the funding of terrorists."

"So terrorists always need money and the question is which ways this money go and how can we block that," Muttonen continued. "And in that case we always need to work together or also related to border issues for example."

She said that information sharing was crucial for tackling terrorism, and, to that end, different international groups should be operating within the OSCE framework.

Muttinen visited Russia in late November and met with senior Russian lawmakers.
