    Diverse opinions as to what constitutes a terrorist act were expressed at the opening ceremony of the Third International Conference on Terrorism and Electronic Media, which is taking place in Cyprus, while speakers agreed on how terrorism should be tackled.

    The conference is organised by the Russian International Academy of Television and Radio and is attended by journalists from 27 countries.

    Addressing the conference, President of the Union of Cypriot Journalists Andreas Kannaouros said ``terrorism is one of the most serious scourges in our era.`` He added that one should never forget to seek the reasons feeding terrorism, such as social injustice, oppression, military invasion and occupation, noting that ``we never accept any terrorist activity but we must never forget the injustices which are feeding terrorism.``

    Editor-in-Chief of daily ``Moscow News`` Vidally Tretyakov referred to the looming independence of Kosovo, noting that this will create other problems with regions seeking independence, adding that such a move will cause terrorist activity. Such policies will not solve the problem of terrorism in the region, he said, noting that movies proclaim propaganda for terrorism.

    Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Security of the Russian parliament and former General Anatoly Kulikov said police authorities alone cannot combat terrorism but need the assistance of all organisations in society and especially journalists. He noted that the ideology of terrorism, which is violence, has its roots in society, adding that ``real terrorism is covering its horrific face behind freedom movements.``

    Director General of the Directorate on Media and Communications of the Indian government Deepak Sandhu focused on the role of the media and especially how terrorist attacks are covered and pointed out the need for cooperation and exchange of information between the media and the police. ``Terrorism is spreading in all corners of the world. It knows no border and has no regard for human life. All sectors of society must join forces to tackle this phenomenon,`` she said.


    Cyprus plays host to the 3rd World Conference of the International Academy of Television and Radio on Terrorism and electronic media.

    In his speech during the opening ceremony of the Conference in Nicosia, President of the House of Representatives Demetris Christofias said that terrorist attacks are unfortunately increasing in many regions of the world and called on the media community to undertake a positive role in educating people to reject violence.

    The Conference is being attended by journalists from all over the world, as well as high ranking security officials from different countries.
