German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere called on Thursday for creation of an all-European database of individuals involved in terrorist activities.

BERLIN (Sputnik) — In the situation when the terrorists are connected across the globe, European intelligence services need to unite their efforts:

"In Europe, we need an alliance in the field of security. Outside Europe, [we need] a partnership in the field of security. This begins with the exchange of the data in the area of security protection between law enforcement and intelligence services. We want to create an all-European database of individuals who have joined terror organizations. European intelligence services should share information in this area and work with each other closely," he said in the German Parliament.
