    MOSCOW, April 3, 2004. (RIA Novosti). Terrorist attacks similar to those which recently hit Tashkent and Bukhara are unlikely to recur in CIS Central Asian states, deputy director of the Russian Federal Security Service and head of the CIS Anti-Terrorist Center Boris Mylnikov told journalists in Moscow.

    According to him, all the Central Asian countries took extra security measures. "For instance, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan closed their borders," Mr. Mylnikov said.

    "The terrorist attacks on Uzbekistan will not boost similar events in other Central Asian countries," he added.

    In his words, the situation in Central Asia is currently under control. "The power structures have been consolidated in these countries. Their special services, law enforcement bodies and task force units boast substantial counter-terrorist experience".

    Five terrorist attacks recently hit Uzbekistan. Several dozens of people were killed as a result, including nine Uzbek law enforcers.
