Kyrgyz president: ISIS ideology spreading into Central Asia

Kyrgyzstan's President Sooronbai Zheenbekov has warned about a threat of increasing expansion of the ISIS terrorist organization's ideology in Central Asian countries.

"The ideology of Islamic State and other such radical groups is increasingly spreading in Central Asia, with active propaganda and recruiting of citizens of our states," he said at an informal meeting of the CIS leaders. 

The President added that he thinks it will be impossible to ensure collective security, reliable protection of state borders and withstand the present-day challenges and threats without efficient cooperation between the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) in the sphere of border security, TASS reported.
