This is already the second session of the group, which was set up two years ago. It will be attended by representatives of the Foreign Ministries, Interior Ministries, Justice Ministries and the Defence Ministries of the two countries.
The Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed to RIA Novosti that Anatoly Safonov would take part in the consultations on February 23-26. "This is a working group on questions of terrorism, and appropriate problems will be discussed at this session," a spokesman for the ministry pointed out.
The Pakistani leadership repeatedly stated its firm intention to put an end to the threat of terrorism in the country and its readiness for a broad cooperation in this sphere with other countries.
