The Anti-Terrorist Center of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) does not rule out that Uzbekistan came under terrorist attacks as a US ally in the anti-terrorist coalition.
It is believed at the center that the terrorist organization Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IDU) now renamed into the Islamic Party of Turkestan (IPT) was directly concerned with these acts.
RIA Novosti was told at the center on Tuesday that IDU-IPT activities have been seen practically in all Central Asian states. These activities are not only limited to terrorist acts, and arms and drugs traffic, the center said. According to its information, IDU-IPT spiritual leaders are nurturing plans to overthrow constitutional power in the countries of the region.
It was noted at the center that the acts staged in Uzbekistan bear all the hallmarks of Al-Qaeda.
"IDU-IPT has in effect become an Al-Qaeda subsidiary in Central Asia. This is raising concerns among law enforcement bodies of the countries of the region and all CIS states," it was said at the center.
