Moscow welcomed the OSCE's statement in support of a new convention
Moscow welcomed the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's statement in support of a new convention on fighting nuclear terrorism. "The fact the OSCE adopted the ministerial statement shows growing solidarity among the members of the Organization in the fight against terrorism and the OSCE's increasingly prominent role in this important sphere of international cooperation," Russia's foreign ministry said in a statement. The OSCE adopted the foreign ministerial statement on June 20 in support of the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism. The initiative to adopt the statement was advanced by Russia and France. Fifty-five OSCE countries thereby pledged to make efforts to sign the convention in New York on September 14, when the UN summit opens. They also pledged to ensure its ratification as soon as possible. The UN General Assembly adopted the convention on April 13, 2005. To come into force, 22 countries must ratify it. If ratified, it would be the 13th in a series of anti-terrorism conventions and protocols
