The message reads, in part:
“Over the past years, this conference has convincingly proved its relevance as a respected venue for discussing current issues of national, regional and global security. Your agenda is focused on the fight against international terrorism, which has grown to an unprecedented scale and has in fact challenged the entire civilisation.
I want to emphasise that effective resistance to this global threat calls for resolute and coordinated efforts of the international community, with special services and law enforcement agencies playing a special role. We must work consistently to increase the level of interaction, more actively exchange experience and information, and use the latest methods and tools, primarily to prevent and stop terrorist attacks and the propaganda of extremism and ethnic, religious or social intolerance, and to expose the channels of financing terrorist groups.
I am confident that the conference participants will discuss in detail these and other issues that call for finding joint solutions based on international law, and that the proposals you will voice will help strengthen our countries’ security and international stability.”
