Russia's Federal Security Service head urges to strengthen border of CIS countries
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 28
Alexander Bortnikov, the head of the Russian Federal Security Service, called for strengthening the border of the CIS countries, especially in Central Asia because of the threat of Islamic State (IS), RIA Novosti reported.
He said that some ten groups included in the IS consist of citizens of Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and Central Asian countries.
Bortnikov also said that some world powers put the world on the brink of a global religious and civilizational conflict through the IS project.
The IS project appeared as a result of "Arab Spring" and gained momentum thanks to the dual policy of certain world and regional powers, which were trying to solve their own problems.
"As a result, these countries put the world on the brink of a global religious and civilizational conflict, which is fraught with the most devastating consequences," he said.
