New York, Sept 22 (CTK special correspondent) – The exchange of information among secret services is a problem in countries’ determination to jointly fight terrorism, Czech President Milos Zeman told journalists after addressing the U.N. 71st General Assembly session on Wednesday night.
Each country is afraid that information exchange would impair their intelligence community and integrity, Zeman said.
It is necessary to “separate the information that really relates to terrorism from the information which intelligence services gather for other purposes,” Zeman said.
He mentioned the problem shortly after delivering a speech in the U.N. headquarters, in which he criticised the world community for insufficient activity in fighting international terrorism.
In his speech, he called for a joint military action against terrorism and recommended the activation of some articles of the U.N. Charter, including Article 47 that supposes the establishment of a military staff to assist the U.N. Security Council.
