The return of residents of the Central Asian region, who fought on the side of terrorists, to their homeland can lead to “rise of radicalism,” said the Chairman of Kazakh Council on International Relations (CASMO) Yerlan Karin on January 8, Anadolu news agency writes.
“The process of natives of the countries of the Central Asian region, who fought on the side of terrorists, returning from the Middle East is associated with the risk of rising radicalism“, Karin warns.
He disclosed data of the Soufan Group, according to which more than 500 Islamists had returned from Syria after the defeat of the ISIL (organization banned in Russia).
It was reported earlier that, according to a study, 3,417 Russian citizens are taking part in combat on the side of terrorists in the Syrian conflict.
