Withdrawal of the NATO troops from Afghanistan will destabilize the situation in the Central Asia, head of Anti-Terrorist Center of the CIS Andrei Novikov said, ForUm correspondent reports.

"It's no secret that the withdrawal of foreign forces in 2014 will create a strategic situation in Central Asia. After all, the states of the Central Asia have very long borders with Afghanistan. Hence there is an issue of a transfer of responsibility of the U.S. and the coalition.

The actual situation in Afghanistan and its development in 2014, is a kind of trigger for destabilization in the Central Asia," he said. According to the expert, there is a risk of attempts of transformation of the "Arab revolutions" in the CIS countries.
In addition, he said that terrorism today is large-scale construction and planned economic relations. In his opinion, the organizations are formed, including with the involvement of representatives of the criminal world, which masking by the idea of faith, solve exclusively economic issues.

In addition, the terrorist activity is associated with the issues of energy resources for consuming countries, and the countries of transit. "This is especially important for the Russian space, as well as Europe and China," he said.

The expert recalled the events in Libya and Iraq, where the insurgents captured oil production facilities and marine terminals.

However, Novikov said that Ukraine has low level of terrorist threat.
