Heads of special services structures of the CIS countries are gathering in Moscow to coordinate joint work on the global terrorist threat, the press office of the CIS Antiterrorist Center reported.
In attendance are delegations of security agencies and special services of the CIS countries, statutory bodies and sectoral cooperation bodies of the commonwealth, international organizations, representatives of several Russian departments.
On the agenda in particular is the global terrorist threat from the Syrian-Iraqi zone, estimates of the shift of interests of international terrorist organizations to other regions of the world, and possible forms of terrorist manifestations at the external borders of the CIS countries.
The participants of the meeting will also outline repercussions for terrorists who have previously fought in hot spots upon their return home. It is estimated that there are 5,000 nationals of CIS countries who fight on the side of terrorists in Syria, and 4,000 nationals of Russia’s regions.
Particular attention will be paid to the preparation of the CIS joint antiterrorist exercises for later in 2018.
