Moscow to Propose Anti-Terror Info ExchangeMoscow to Propose Anti-Terror Info Exchange

Moscow will propose to step up information exchange about international terrorist organizations at the Russia-Azerbaijan-Iran summit on Monday, Russian presidential aide, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters on Friday.

He noted that the results of discussions in Baku will be reflected in the final declaration, which is being coordinated by the foreign ministers and will be adopted at the summit, TASS reported.

“We, in particular, propose to step up information exchange between the three countries about international terrorist organizations. This would help effectively counter trafficking militants, weapons and drugs through the territories of our countries,” he said.

The presidential aide reminded that the upcoming meeting in Baku is the first trilateral summit.

“The idea to hold it was put forward by Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev,” Ushakov said, adding that this format is very appropriate.

The aide noted that the three countries are neighbors and face similar problems, including global economic crisis, the fight against terrorism and the situation on borders, particularly along borders with Afghanistan and in general in the Middle East.

“One of the main aims of the summit in the new format is considering opportunities on promoting infrastructure projects, primarily in the sphere of transportation,” Ushakov concluded.
