50 States Adopt Anti-terrorism Measures In Bishkek

A programme of action against terrorism has been adopted Friday in Bishkek to consolidate security and stability in Central Asia. The document is signed by 50 countries, including Russia, the USA, China, Great Britain, Germany and 21 international organizations, with NATO, IMF and Interpol among them. This programme is a concept of joint activities of different countries and international organizations, providing for stiffer international control in this sphere with the UNO playing the chief role. All the signatories are now to introduce legal amendments on prevention of money laundering and on additional welfare benefits for victims of terrorism and their families. They should also provide for higher responsibility for terrorism without infringing on civil rights and freedoms. The programme lays special emphasis on Central Asian countries because of their proximity to Afghanistan and ensuing threats. The world community suggests rendering the states of the region aid in social and economic development as well as technical and financial assistance in border guarding. According to the OSCE president, Rumanian Foreign Minister Mircea Dan Geoaona, terrorism threatening the economic, political and moral values of states, can undermine any society. The governments, mass media and non-government organizations should unite to prevent this outcome, he added.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
