Jurakhon Majidzoda: Tajikistan actively fights terrorism for national security purposes


The National Strategy of Tajikistan for Combating Extremism and Terrorism for the period 2016-2020 is the main document of a program nature defining the goals, objectives and main directions of the state policy of Tajikistan in this field.

“Transnational and organized crime, whose opposition is at the forefront of international politics, and seen as a manifestation of new challenges and threats, have become one of the main factors of the deterioration of political, socio-economic stability in society. Terrorist organizations, strengthening their activities to spread religious discord in society, recruiting young people and committing crimes of a terrorist nature, are trying to change the social and political foundations of the country by the method of terror”, the head of the Committee on the Rule of Law, Defense and Security of the Central Asian State said.

Tajikistan, like other countries in the Central Asian region, is fighting against terrorism for the purposes of the national security and the stable development of society and the state.

“Due to its geopolitical and geo-economic position, Tajikistan is still the object of encroachment on international terrorism. In this regard, a serious political security threat is posed by neighboring Afghanistan, where a number of religious and extremist centers operate. Proceeding from this, Tajikistan consistently and hard advocates an energetic collective effort in the field of maintaining regional and global security, actively participates in the coalition of countries fighting international terrorism”, Jurakhon Majidzoda stressed.

At the same time, the Chairman of the Tajik Mazhilis Committee believes that new approaches, forms and methods of combating modern international terrorism should be sought at the legislative level. In order to strengthen the fight against international terrorist threats, a broad application of the prevention policy is also recommended, which primarily provides for a wide range of socio-economic and cultural information measures of influence.
