At 7 a.m. in Akorda residence, the Head of State held a meeting with the leadership of the Presidential Administration, the Security Council, and law enforcement agencies.
Operational situation in the country, the course of the anti-terrorist operation, as well as the current situation in the regions have been reviewed at the meeting.
“Anti-terror operation has kicked off. The law enforcement forces are working hard. The constitutional order has been mainly restored in all regions. Local authorities are monitoring the situation. But terrorists are still using weapons, causing damage to civilian property.
