On July 23, the 10th meeting of the Russian-Indian Joint Working Group on Combating International Terrorism was held in Moscow. It was attended by representatives of the agencies concerned from both countries and co-chaired by Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Oleg Syromolotov and his Indian counterpart, Ms Preeti Saran.

Those attending the meeting discussed current aspects of international cooperation in the fight against terrorism, including the tasks of preventing terrorism, cutting off the material and ideological support of terrorist groups, and dealing with the phenomenon of foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs).

The sides also exchanged opinions on the state of the terrorist threat around the world, including the Middle East, Afghanistan and South, Southeast and Central Asia. They briefed each other on their countries’ experience and best practices in combatting terrorism, including the development of the legal framework.

They reaffirmed their firm stand on the need to consolidate the efforts of the international community, led and coordinated by the UN, in the global fight against international terrorism and extremism based on the norms and principles of international law without any double standards.

The Russian and Indian delegations highlighted the need to invigorate international cooperation to prevent the proliferation of terrorist and extremist ideologies and subsequent radicalisation of public sentiments, as well as terrorist recruitment, including via the internet.

They discussed the possibility of building up cooperation and exchanging information on combatting terrorism and the related threats to international security at the bilateral level and also at the main international platforms, such as the UN, the SCO, BRICS and FATF.
