Countries that habour terrorists are a threat to regional integration

Yes, no country should derive pride in sheltering criminals from anywhere. They should collaborate, especially with their closest neighbours to fight cross-border crime and to refuse safe haven to criminals from each other’s territory, if integration is to have any chance of really happening.

This unfortunately makes it even harder to understand when some countries provide not just such safe havens to criminals but in fact integrate operatives from well known terrorist organizations from neighbouring countries into their own security and intelligence operations, and openly use them to terrorise innocent citizens from those neighbours. How then can integration be expected with such neighbours?
