According to him, in 2016, three members of international terrorist organizations were liquidated during eight anti-terrorist operations. «95 people were brought to responsibility, a large number of weapons and improvised explosive devices was seized," Temir Jumakadirov said.

This is a real threat for us. I would like to note that the State Committee for National Security and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kyrgyzstan are able to work ahead of schedule and prevent events that occur in some countries.
