"Now that the forum in Davos is over, where the issue of terrorism has been discussed at various levels, it is important that PACE takes up the issue for the further discussion," Vice Chairman of the Assembly, Head of the Federation Council (Russian Parliament's Upper Chamber) Committee on International relations Mikhail Margelov told journalists on Monday.
The Senator recalled that the last time PACE discussed this issue was in January 2002. "Back then the discussions resulted in the critics of the US policy. Every country can be criticized for something," Margelov said.
He believes it's necessary for PACE to find under the present conditions the opportunity to combine fight against terrorism with the observance of human rights and to give a clear definition for such a notion as "international terrorism".
