TALLINN - Chairman of the Estonian parliament's security authorities surveillance select committee Alar Laneman is taking part in the Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum, which focuses on the fight against terrorism.

Laneman said he expects the forum to examine the situation in anti-terrorist activities. "We will discuss the current situation in the fight against terrorism around the world, and ways to support countries in combating terrorism," the select committee chair said.

Laneman said that the members of parliaments would also discuss anti-terrorist strategy. "It is important for countries to exchange experiences and engage in closer cooperation both in preventing and combating terrorism," he said.

The Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum is taking place for the 14th time. The purpose of the forum is to raise awareness on the fight against terrorism. The forum gives members of parliaments across the world an opportunity to learn from the experiences of countries in combating terrorism and funding for terrorism, as well as a place to discuss important security topics more broadly.
