MINSK, November 17 (BelTA) – A Belarusian delegation led by Secretary of State of the Security Council Aleksandr Volfovich attended the ninth meeting of secretaries of the Security Councils of CIS member states in Moscow on November 17, learned BelTA to the State Secretariat of the Belarusian Security Council.
The participants of the meeting discussed current issues of international and regional security, exchanged views on migration issues, the fight against the use of information and communication technologies for criminal purposes and biological threats. One of the key items on the agenda was the challenges emanating from the territory of Afghanistan.
The Belarusian delegation noted that today the country acts as an outpost in the Eastern European region, countering the full spectrum of modern risks, challenges and threats. The situation of migrants is worsening with the worsening of the military and political situation and the strengthening of the external military presence near the Belarusian borders. Neighboring European countries have shown a total insufficiency and inability to discuss emerging issues in a civilized manner. The so-called “liberal and democratic” values have brought common sense out of European diplomacy. The West has shown its true face by manipulating notions such as the struggle for human rights and freedom of expression, by demonstrating its cruel attitude towards migrants who try to enter the European Union.
In addition to issues of multilateral cooperation, heads of delegations also discussed a wide range of key issues in bilateral interaction. Thus, Aleksandr Volfovich and the Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev reviewed the progress made in the effort to strengthen the security of the State of the Union, and signed a cooperation plan between the Councils of security of the two countries for 2022-2023.
Sberbank organized a seminar on the use of artificial intelligence for the secretaries of the security councils of the CIS countries.
