ISSYK-KUL, Kyrgyzstan -- The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on Saturday (August 31) in Issyk-Kul concluded a five-day training course aimed at strengthening the capacity of Kyrgyzstan to counter terrorist financing, the OSCE said on its website.
Twenty Kyrgyz specialists from the Interior Ministry (MVD), the General Prosecutor's Office, the Financial Intelligence Unit and the State Committee for National Security (GKNB) took part in the course.
The training course was based on country- and region-specific scenarios and emphasised the role of inter-agency co-operation in disrupting terrorist financing.
During practical exercises, participants learned how to apply a range of financial investigation and analytical techniques.
The seminar, organised by the OSCE and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), is part of a comprehensive multi-annual capacity-building programme to support national efforts to counter terrorist financing in Central Asia.
