MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly’s special representative on anti-terrorism, Russian MP Nikolay Kovalev has proposed to create an international anti-terrorist organization similar to the Interpol.
A respective proposal has been sent to OSCE PA Speaker Ilkka Kanerva, OSCE PA Secretary-General Roberto Montella and the heads of national delegations ahead of the winter session of the organization due on February 25-26 in Vienna, Austria.
The proposed organization could be tasked with "searching for terrorists and their accomplices, collecting and exchanging information, detecting and assisting a country-initiator in looking for a suspect or established criminal," Kovalev said in a letter obtained by TASS.
The State Duma MP, who led Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) in late 1990s, has also urged the consideration of such topical issues as unifying anti-terrorist laws and drafting measures aimed at curbing the funding of terrorist organizations.
The politician has also called for stepping up cooperation of the OSCE countries’ special services, namely their anti-terrorist branches. Kovalev said he will unveil the proposals at the assembly’s session.
"This issue is especially acute amid the growing number of refugees from the Middle East, Central Asia and Northern Africa where the terrorist groups send their members," he stressed.
