"I am introducing this draft resolution bearing in mind the growing threat and the number of terrorist acts carried out on board of aircrafts in the OSCE region. It proposes necessary technical means through equipping aircraft with photographic and audio-visual monitoring equipment that will allow for for ground personnel to conduct video monitoring of conditions on board in real time," Nikolay Kovalev, who is also Russian Special Representative on Anti-Terrorism said on the sidelines of the ongoing OSCE PA annual meeting in Tbilisi.
Kovalev believes that this resolution will be adopted by OSCE PA during the ongoing session as no amendments to the document have been made.
If the draft resolution is adopted, the next step would be to begin elaborating, without delay, the legal basis for the practical implementation of this initiative locally in the OSCE member-states, he added.
The OSCE is the world’s largest regional security organization made up of 57 nations. The Parliamentary Assembly connects the parliaments of the OSCE member nations.
