MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. Fighting the threat of terrorism and extremism requires a complex approach, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday in a welcome address to participants in an international conference of Muslim religious activists - Islamic religion against extremism.
The minister said the topic of fighting extremism and terrorism "is in the centre of attention of this country’s leaders."
"President Vladimir Putin spoke on the topic at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly and made several suggestions," Lavrov said. "Russia has chaired a ministerial meeting of the UN Security Council, which discussed fighting of the developing terrorist threat in the Middle East and North Africa."
"The Islamic State (IS) based there is not only a common enemy for all countries and peoples, but it is a group responsible for grave crimes, it is also an enemy of Islam," the foreign minister said. "IS aims at compromising Islam, ruining it from the inside."
