    NEW DELHI, February 18, 2004. (RIA Novosti correspondent Valeri Sevryukov) -- The consistent and uncompromising antiterrorist position of India makes it a natural ally of Russia in the struggle against this evil, Russian ambassador to India Alexander Kadakin has said on Wednesday. He was giving a lecture at the Indian Environmental Studies Research Fund.

    To him, the compatibility of the two countries' antiterrorist concepts is the strong base for the build-up of Russian-Indian cooperation in this sphere within the framework of the United Nations and other international organisations, in the bilateral format.

    Mr. Kadakin noted that the both states, aware of the danger of terrorism gaining access to weapons of mass destruction, undertake coordinated efforts to promote in the United Nations the Indian draft Comprehensive Convention on the Struggle Against International Terrorism and the Russian draft International Convention on the Struggle Against Actions of Nuclear Terrorism.

    The Russian ambassador stressed that the both countries are concerned over facts confirming Pakistan's involvement in the spread of nuclear technologies, which increases the possibility of weapons of mass destruction getting into the hands of terrorists.

    Mr. Kadakin voiced support for India's intention to draw the attention of international institutions to these facts in a bid to ensure in the future a more responsible behaviour of the countries having a nuclear potential.
