Delivering his statement in a plenary session of the high-level conference: “International and regional cooperation in the fight against terrorism and its sources of financing, including drug trafficking and organized crime” in Dushanbe, capital of Tajikistan, he said: “If we bear in mind our region, then it should be noted that the actions of extremist and radical groups also pose a serious threat to the countries of Central Asia.”
“They disguise their mercenary goals with religious slogans and gather their supporters under the banner of the struggle for social justice. However, in reality, they aim to change the secular structure of the region’s states and use all means and methods to seize political power,” said Emomali Rahmon, according to EurAsian Times.
