“States with sovereignty in foreign policy clearly understand the importance of cooperation in solving global problems. This proves the growing interest of foreign colleagues in the Moscow Security Conference, within the framework of which there is an opportunity to exchange experience and develop constructive interaction. ” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak.
He noted: “The general attitude of the participants in the Moscow Security Conference testifies to the understanding by most countries of the need for comprehensive dialogue and cooperation to maintain the balance of power and reduce the tension in the international situation. A large number of modern challenges, including terrorism, cybercrime, the threat of a new wave of the arms race, the risk of using various types of weapons of mass destruction, epidemics and natural disasters, require states to be accountable and united. An open exchange of views among security professionals plays a huge role in building a system of interaction between countries. The refusal of NATO representatives to participate in the Moscow conference clearly demonstrates the lack of desire of the alliance to conduct a dialogue and maintain stability. ”
According to the politician: “The system of international relations is currently experiencing colossal pressures and is undergoing destructive attempts to destroy the stability of the world. The consolidation of states capable of maintaining common sense in their policies, strengthening the collective security system and effectively responding to real, not perceived threats, is imperative. The leaders of the law enforcement agencies of Russia and foreign countries who spoke during the Conference spoke convincingly about this today. ”
“The anti-Russian hysteria unleashed by a number of Western countries is not an obstacle for those who understand the importance of cooperation with Russia. We continue to offer partnership in the field of global security, are convinced of the need to prevent terrorism and extremism, including on the Internet, are open to joint actions to combat crime in cyberspace, and insist on maintaining peaceful outer space. For stability in the world, it is necessary to develop common approaches to the issues of migration and socio-cultural adaptation of refugees and displaced persons, we consider the most important task of educational work with young people on security issues. ”
“The unhealthy ambitions of certain Western countries, whose leaderships intimidate their own population with a fictitious Russian threat, only play into the hands of real criminals and terrorists. Such an approach to foreign policy destabilizes the system of international relations, destroys the foundations of security and makes the world vulnerable to global threats, ”Zheleznyak added.
