    MOSCOW, JANUARY 16, RIA NOVOSTI - The United Nations committee for sanctions against the Taliban and the Al-Qaida entered three terrorist gangs active in Chechnya on its black list. Moscow regards the move among last year's biggest breakthroughs in the anti-terror cause, Anatoli Safonov, Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, said in a Novosti interview.

    Chechen terrorist chieftains Zelimkhan Yandarbiev and Shamil Basayev were also blacklisted by the UN and, shortly after, by the European Union, added Mr. Safonov.

    The United Nations is offering ever greater understanding and support to Russia's lasting consistent policies aimed to elaborate global strategies against current threats and challenges-suffice it to mention a consensus in which the latest, 58th UN General Assembly approved a Russian-initiated resolution on retaliation of global threats and challenges. The resolution envisages practical action to enhance and better implement the UN potential for an adequate and all-round response to the latest challenges to security.

    Another General Assembly resolution, on human rights and terrorism, came as Russia's another spectacular achievement in the United Nations. It reflects all the essentials of a Code of Protection of Human Rights from Terrorism, as offered by Russia for the UN to elaborate on. In particular, the resolution takes into account one of the basic code premises-a trailblazing statement on every person's right to be protected from terrorism, said the deputy minister.
