RUSSIA CALLS FOR WORLD CONVENTION TO PREVENT NUKE TERROR
MADRID, March 10 (RIA Novosti) - The world is not to put off the adoption of an international convention on efforts against nuclear terror acts, stressed Igor Ivanov, Russia's Security Council Secretary.
If the convention were passed in a consensus during the current, 59th United Nations General Assembly session, it would come as a landmark in global efforts to rule out terrorist access to mass destruction weaponry, Mr. Ivanov said to an international summit on democracy, terrorism and security, underway in Madrid.
The world is waging a hard battle on terrorism, and to build up mutual confidence of all countries who share universal democratic values is a principal earnest of victory in that battle, he pointed out. However hard anti-terror combat might be, the world will certainly cope, reassured Mr. Ivanov.
