Russian Foreign Minister Calls on Interested Parties to Join Anti-terror Information Center

Moscow, October 13 (RHC)-- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called on more nations to join the intelligence-sharing center recently formed in the Iraqi capital Baghdad to fight against terrorist groups.

"We welcome all the interested countries to attend the information center we set up with Iraq, Syria, and Iran in Baghdad,” Lavrov said at a Monday press conference in the Russian capital Moscow. He also expressed Moscow’s readiness to review proposals for establishing new coordination centers in the region for anti-terror fight.

“We are still considering setting up similar coordination centers in other places in this region. As well as the countries mentioned, countries in the Middle East and North Africa would also attend these centers," Lavrov said.

The main function of the Baghdad information center, which was formed in late September, is to collect, process, and analyze data on terrorist organizations operating in the Middle East, particularly the Daesh Takfiri group.

According to Russian media reports, the leadership of the joint center will be determined on a rotating basis among the four countries, starting with Iraq.
