MOSCOW. Oct 13 (Interfax) - The member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) need to expand exchange of intelligence data on international terrorists and the plans of the West, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said.

"In this situation, we need to expand acquisition and exchange of intelligence information about plans of international terrorist organizations and the intentions of the West to use them against our countries," Patrushev said at a conference of the security and intelligence chiefs of CIS member states in Moscow on Wednesday.
