The U.S. State Department intends to study Russia's experience in its counterterrorism efforts used in the country's troubled region of North Caucasus
The U.S. State Department intends to study Russia's experience in its counterterrorism efforts used in the country's troubled region of North Caucasus, a military official said Monday. Colonel General Arkady Yedelev, the chief of the operational headquarters in the North Caucasus, said the U.S. State Department had already filed a request for permission to send a delegation to Russia's North Caucasus republic of Chechnya. "The unique counterterrorism system used in the North Caucasus has shaped our state policy and defined roles for all executive bodies in the prevention of terrorism," he said. "The experience has provoked interest among foreigners." The United States has been leading a multinational military campaign in Iraq since 2003 and encounters daily terrorism attacks on its military servicemen as well as on peaceful citizens. The country also leads an antiterrorism campaign in Afghanistan. The most recent terrorism attack against the United States occurred Monday as a suicide bomber attacked a U.S. Embassy convoy in Kabul, Afghanistan, wounding several people, including an American. Yedelev also said that Russia is continuing to fight against militants in the North Caucasus, adding that currently 37 illegal armed groups, consisting of about 450 militants, were still active in Chechnya. Although the active phase of the North Caucasus antiterrorist campaign officially ended in 2001, periodic bombings and clashes between gunmen and federal troops still disrupt Chechnya and nearby regions, including Daghestan, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, and Karachayevo-Circassia.
