Global forum for cooperation between states and businesses in counteracting terrorism ended in Moscow
A global forum for cooperation between states and businesses in counteracting terrorism ended in the Russian capital on Thursday. According to Russian presidential special representative for issues of international cooperation in the fight against terrorism and trans-national organised crime Anatoly Safonov, “The issue of cooperation of states with businesses in counteracting terrorism has long been felt, but thanks to the Russian initiative and support of the Group of Eight countries, as well as the whole international community, we have managed to implement this idea.” In the view of the official the main thing was “to do the preparatory work, combine common interests, views, priorities and also not to violate the voluntary principle.” “Now the main attention will be focused on not losing the potential of those positive ideas that were expressed at the forum in quantities larger than we had expected,” said Safonov. The Russian presidential envoy believes that the “difficult situation in Afghanistan and critical developments in Iraq are caused by poor social and economic components in the rehabilitation of this territory and creation of jobs here.” According to him, “It is necessary to replace the image of the man with weapons with the man working.” “Otherwise we will return again and again to the hot phase of this struggle,” said the official. He believes that the same situation was taking shape in Chechnya as well, but “as soon as social programmes began to work the situation change for the better started.” “We all understand that the business plays an enormous role in economic revival,” Safonov emphasised. “The outcome of a fight is determined not on the battlefield, but behind the frontline where there are economic and financial resources,” he noted. The forum participants signed on its results a declaration on partnership between states and businesses in combating terrorism. The document is called upon to strengthen methods of counteracting financing of terrorism and prevent the use of business structures and separate enterprises for terrorist purposes, as well as envisages cooperation in emergency situations and their liquidation and cooperation in the spheres of charity, education and mass media for reducing the terrorist menace. The strategy envisages the “creation with the participation of the government and business of unofficial international working groups on issues of developing antiterrorist partnership in key spheres.”
