Anti-terror chief in top protection talks

THE head of the United Nation’s terrorism body has visited Spain to discuss the importance of the role of attacked victims in society.

Vladimir Voronkov, Under Secretary General of the UN’s Counter-Terrorism Office, spoke with Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell during his visit last week.

It preceded the Global Counter-terrorism Forum, set to take place in Malaga City in March, and Voronkov also met with Fernando Valenzuela, Spanish Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to discuss how to give even more protection to terror-attack victims.

Spanish Government sources said the country was committed to continue fighting against terrorism, and to working towards world peace and stability.

The sources added that Madrid would continue to contribute funds to the UN’s Counter-Terrorism Office.

Spain has faced terror attacks from the Basque nationalist ETA group, and 14 people died in Barcelona after one took place there in 2017.
