The joint CIS commission in charge of the alignment of national anti-drugs, anti-crime, and anti-terror legislations is beginning a two-day session on Monday at the headquarters of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly - historical Tavrichesky Palace in St. Petersburg.

    The Assembly press service said lawmakers from CIS parliaments would join the members of the Assembly's permanent defense and security commission for this meeting. According to the press service, the Center for Political and International Research, the Russian State Messenger Service, the CIS Executive Committee's security and anti-criminal/antiterrorist cooperation department, and the Russian Federal Drugs Service will also send delegates to the forum.
