Take note – story published 6 years ago

In opinion of the Latvia's internal security service the Security Police, Russia's aggressive foreign policy and terrorist threat will remain the main national security challenges in 2017, the LETA news agency reported January 2, citing the Security Police.

 

This year the Security Police will also be working to prevent illegal activities during the municipal elections in Latvia in early June, the LETA report said.

Increased attention will be paid to the processes in the media environment because the amounts of untrue or intentionally twisted information are growing and may influence social and political developments in Latvia, thus creating risks to national security interests, it added.

Although the terror threat level in Latvia is low, the Latvian Security Police in cooperation with other organizations participating in the counter-terrorism measures will keep developing a national counter-terrorism system to provide prompt and effective response to increased terror threat, the news report concluded.
