Azerbaijan Actively Contributing to the Fight Against International Terrorism - UN


March 18, 2013

Azerbaijan plays an important role in the fight against terrorism.

Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Yury Fedotov has told this to journalists on the sidelines of the International Conference on Strengthening Cooperation in the field of prevention of terrorism in Baku, reports.

According to him, such level conference on the prevention of terrorism has not been held previously.

"This event is organized at a high level. I'm sure the conference held in Baku will make a positive contribution to the fight against terrorism at the international level. Following the discussion, there are some suggestions that can be used in the international community in the fight against terrorism," said Fedotov, adding that Azerbaijan is actively contributing to the fight against international terrorism.

Fedotov also said that the proposals put forward can be used as part of the UN Counter-Terrorism Strategy.

He complained that in the fight against international terrorism, there is no single approach but there are double standards.

"So far, there is no accepted definition of terrorism, and in this regard, there are various problems of perception of any terrorist act," he stressed.
