János Hajdú, director of the Hungarian Counter-terrorism Center, is also attending the FSB conference in Moscow, where he agreed to join the database of the Russian security service, Népszava reports.
Hungary intends to join the counter-terrorism database where these institutions can share their experiences and knowledge in terms of terrorism, announced János Hajdú on Wednesday in his interview for M1 News Channel.
He is currently at the XVII. Conference of the Directors of Special Services, Security Departments and law enforcement.
He claims that Russia called the other states to enter the database in order to fight against terrorism better. As we wrote it earlier, Hungary takes fighting against terrorism very seriously, so the Hungarian Counter-terrorism Center (CTC) is complying with their request.
CTC (TEK in Hungarian) was founded in 2010 and has been taking part in the forum ever since. The conference took place between the 6th and 8th of November:
125 delegates of 86 countries discuss counterterrorism.
It was opened by Alexander Bortnikov, head of the FSB, and Sergei Lavrov, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, spoke as well, among others. According to János Hunyadi, they were talking about not just ISIS but other terrorist organisations as well. They mentioned:
- The al-Kaida. Both bodies have weakened recently, but there is an increased chance of their merger. Their recruiting activity is outrageous, and they are openly recruiting children.
- The issue of returning warriors: their warriors are either returning to their home country or going to another, where they want to or have already committed terrorist attacks. The database could play a key role in preventing this.
- They discussed the role of chemical and biological weapons which could be very dangerous in terrorists’ hands.
- A priority issue was the termination of drones since these machines are used by most of the terrorist organisations.
- They talked about the dangers of cyberspaces, too.
