UN counter terrorism committee to discuss fight against financing of terrorism

The main topic on the agenda of the third meeting of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee on Friday will be fight against financial sources of international terrorism and organized crime, RIA Novosti learned from the Committee's organizational committee in Vienna.

"International terrorism has rooted itself in international organized crime, whose huge financial means are mainly allocated to terrorism-related activities on all continents," Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention, said in an interview with a RIA Novosti correspondent.

According to him, "civilized states of the world should intensify cooperation and create efficient barriers on all ways of terrorism and extremism spreading across the planet." Participants of the Vienna meeting will also discuss the security problems of civil flights due to a possibility of terrorists using the Manpads mobile anti-air defense system.
