Belarus completes creation of national terrorism response system

Belarus is completing the development of a national terrorism response system, State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Yuri Zhadobin stated at a session of top-ranking officials of the counter terrorism units of the CIS security bodies and special services, reported BELTA.

Yuri Zhadobin said that terrorism and radical extremism are global threats facing all countries. Counteracting these global threats and challenges of the 21st-century is one of the top priorities of the foreign policy of Belarus. Although the political situation is stable in Belarus, the country has been undertaking all necessary measures to prevent and stop any manifestations of terrorism. Terrorism, however, knows no frontiers; therefore not a single country can combat this threat alone.

According to Yuri Zhadobin, the CIS counter terrorism units and special services have gained good experience in this area in the course of joint measures including joint exercises. He is confident that this year's session and joint Bastion-Counter Terror 2008 strategic exercise in Belarus will contribute to increasing the efficiency of the cooperation between the CIS countries in combating the 21st-century threats.
