National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) head Comr. Gen. Suhardi Alius is attending the UN High Level Conference of Heads of Counterterrorism Agencies of Member States in New York on Thursday and Friday.

Suhardi will present a speech on preventing violent extremism by engaging the youth and combating internet abuse by terrorists.
