MINSK, 3 September (BelTA) – International organizations need to team up for the development of a counter-terrorism front, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the international conference on counter-terrorism in Minsk on 3 September, BelTA has learned.
According to the head of state, Belarus continues supporting all the counter-terrorism initiatives within the framework of the United Nations. The country strengthens partnership in counter-terrorism, shares information and best practices, participates in developing a network of counter-terrorism coordinators.
“Today's scale of terrorist activities, however, requires going beyond one organization. I am convinced that the development of a strong-knit counter-terrorism front by the UN, the OSCE, the EU, the CSTO, the CIS, the SCO and other international organizations is the only way to counteract this threat effectively,” the Belarusian leader said.
He also believes that the idea to unite two regions: the OSCE and the ASEAN under the aegis of the Minsk conference on counter-terrorism was relevant and timely.
