Political acts with a large number of victims have ceased to be an extraordinary event. To date, international cooperation in the fight against terrorism is carried out in three main areas: 1. General direction. The cooperation is carried out under the auspices of the United Nations. At this level, the main doctrinal documents and international actions have been developed to determine the main areas of interaction and cooperation between countries. 2. Regional direction. Interaction is carried out at the interstate level through the following associations such as: the League of Arab States, the Organization of American States, the European Union, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the African Union, etc. One of the main tasks of this area is counter-terrorism, separatism and extremism. 3. Bilateral direction. The direction of activity between the two states is aimed at exchanging information, providing mutual assistance and maintaining cooperation between special services of the states in order to effectively combat terrorism.
The main problems of international cooperation The main problem in the fight against international terrorism is that the main counter-terrorism efforts are limited by a number of states. As a rule, those countries that have not faced mass terrorist attacks usually ignore this problem. Also, the reluctance of individual countries to join the process of studying terrorism, training of national special services and law enforcement agencies in modern methods and forms of combating it causes irreparable consequences. Moreover, it encourages international terrorist organizations to expand their activities in countries where the anti-terrorist regime is weak or moderate. The main shortcomings in the fight against international terrorism: - inconsistency of the regulatory framework of states in the fight against terrorism - protection of national interests prevails over interstate agreements in the fight against terrorism - low quality training involved in the development of measures to quality and speed of data exchange between states in the field of counterterrorism; - shortage of financial resources in some countries to ensure the appropriate level of cooperation in this area. Ways to improve the activities of states in combating international terrorism: institutions) that are willing to participate in the fight against international terrorism, but do not have sufficient financial resources; - to focus efforts on training quality and qualified personnel in the field of - to create (improve) a system for exchanging information on combating international terrorism at the state level.
