Acting President and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin addressed an extraordinary meeting of the Council of Interior Ministers of the Commonwealth of Independent States

March 10, 2000, Moscow

Acting President Putin urged the CIS member-states to stand together in combating international terrorism. The recent events in the Caucasus and Central Asia evidenced the need for joint efforts of security agencies of the CIS member-states to counter terrorism and extremism.

Among the main issues on the common agenda the acting Russian head of state singled out drafting a programme of counter-terrorist measures, establishing a joint counter-terrorism centre and compiling a single database of the CIS on terrorists, terrorist groups and sources of their finances.
