Security actions infringing on sovereignty unacceptable

News ID: 3987677 -
ZAVIDOVO, May 24 (MNA) – Regional and global security tasks should be addressed without actions infringing on sovereign interests, a read-out of Russian President Vladimir Putin's greeting message delivered to the participants of the eighth high-level international security conference Wednesday said.

Putin's address, delivered by Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev in Tver Region, notes that "an effective solution to such large-scale and complex tasks requires the coordination of all members of the world community's efforts."

"At the same time, it is extremely important that measures to ensure regional and global security are undertaken on the basis of consolidated approaches while strictly observing the principles and norms of international law. Actions that infringe on the legitimate interests of sovereign states, as well as the practice of double standards, are categorically unacceptable," the message stated.

"I would like to emphasize that Russia is ready for closest interaction with all interested partners in confronting the threats and challenges facing humanity today," Putin's message said.

The eighth international high-level meeting on security issues kicked off on Tuesday in Zavidovo National Resort in Tver Region and will last through Thursday. The delegations will comprise security council secretaries, presidential aides, ministers and intelligence officials. This year's meeting will be devoted to the issues of global information security and fight with international organized crime.

In 2010, the first such meeting on international security under the aegis of the RSC in the Russian resort city of Sochi comprised 44 countries, while the seventh meeting in Grozny, the capital of Russia's Chechen Republic, gathered 75 states.
