Representatives of government agencies tasked with combating terrorism and violent extremism took part in thematic discussions that underscored the country's comprehensive approach to tackling these challenges.
In particular, assessors highlighted Kyrgyzstan's considerable progress in the fight against terrorist financing, including in improving its legal framework, and advised on ways to boost the effectiveness of these efforts.
