CTED assessment visit to the Republic of Uzbekistan

Representatives of the CIS Anti-Terrorism Center took part in a follow-up assessment visit of the delegation of the Executive Directorate of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee to Uzbekistan to monitor implementation of UN Security Council resolutions 1373 (2001), 1624 (2005) and 2178 (2014) by the Government authorities from 14 to 16 April 2015.

During the three-day visit, the Uzbek authorities informed the delegation about the progress achieved since the initial visit by CTC in July 2009, in particular regarding the shift from pure law enforcement measures to a comprehensive approach aimed at preventing conditions conducive to terrorism, as well as a number of legislative amendments relating to criminal proceedings.

The parties also discussed counteraction to contemporary terrorist challenges and threats, including the mercenary activity and terrorist use of the Internet.

In addition to the CIS ATC experts, the delegation also included representatives of the UN Security Council Committee, the Eurasian Group on Combating Money-Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism (EAG), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (RATS SCO), and the Terrorism Prevention Branch of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC/TPB).
