    Russia is about to ratify an agreement between Moscow and Beijing on cooperation in the fight against terrorism, separatism and extremism.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin signed on Tuesday a law ratifying an agreement between Moscow and Beijing on cooperation in the fight against terrorism, separatism and extremism.

    "To ratify the Agreement between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China on cooperation in the fight against terrorism, separatism and extremism, signed in Beijing on September 27, 2010," the law published on the official Russian internet-portal of legal information said.

    The Russia-China agreement envisions the development of bilateral cooperation in counterterrorism strategy, including joint measures for prevention, detection and suppression of terror activities in the border areas. It stipulates the exchange of data concerning terrorist organizations, the operations they plan, the sources of financing, as well as information about illegal use of explosives, weapons and ammunition.

    The document also stipulates assistance in the investigation of criminal cases at the request of the other party, as well as strengthening cooperation in research activities, exchange of technology and joint production of special equipment on the basis of separate agreements.
