The terrorists from Iraq and Syria are stretching towards Afghanistan and might try to destabilize the situation in the CIS countries, and so it is necessary to constantly control the situation on the border, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin said during a meeting with representatives of the special services of the CIS countries, RIA Novosti reports.

“In this regard, it is important to always control the situation on the Afghan border and be ready to counter the militants, and for that it is necessary to coordinate the work of security forces and, if necessary, carry out joint operations,” the Russian president added.

“The neutralization of potential threats from the territory of Afghanistan is of special significance for ensuring security in the CIS countries. We all understand very well what serious impacts the events in this country may have on the situations in Central Asia, Transcaucasia and other regions,” Putins said.
