Concluding Statement Yevgeny P. Velikhov Kurchatov State Research Center of Atomic Energy This workshop has been very useful. It has been said that terrorism is deter- mining the face of the twenty-first century, and this workshop indicates that this is indeed a reality. Terrorism is a global issue and should be targeted by all available methods, not only by force. I am glad to see that on the Russian side of the workshop, representatives from all involved agencies have been in attendance. As a next step for this workshop, we must seek additional funding for future workshops, possibly as often as twice a year. We will also need to develop a mutual agreement in order to formalize this activity as an interacademy effort. I have spoken to other academicians, and we believe it would be useful to form a committee similar to the Committee on International Security and Arms Control and possibly to sign a joint agreement. I feel that for subsequent activity on this project, it is also important to develop centers both here and in the United States that allow for the exchange of information though joint databases and other means. Once again I would like to offer my thanks to all participants and to the Carnegie Corporation for its support. We have agreed on the production of a final report in both Russian and English, and we will exchange these reports once they have been completed. 270
