NAIROBI, October 7. /TASS/. Russia and Kenya will "compare notes" on issues related to Moscow’s initiative to set up a broad international coalition to fight Islamic State and other militant extremist groups, a senior lawmaker from Russia's parliamentary upper house said on Wednesday.
Speaking upon his arrival in Kenya's capital Nairobi together with a Federation Council delegation, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the Federation Council’s Foreign Affairs committee, told journalists: "It seems highly important to compare notes with the Kenyan leadership on issues related to Russia’s initiative to create a broad international coalition to counteract organized international terrorism."
"Under current conditions, Kenya is increasingly becoming an object of terrorist threat. Its neighbours are no less complicated than those of Jordan," Kosachev told TASS, noting "a very unstable situation" in neighbouring South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and other countries of the region.
Earlier this week, a delegation from Russia’s Federation Council led by Speaker Valentina Matviyenko also visited Jordan. Discussions with the country’s leadership focused on the fight against international terrorism.
Matviyenko said after talks that but for some nuances Russia and Jordan stood for consolidation of international efforts "in countering this global evil — terrorism and Islamic State". "We have absolutely identical positions on that," she stressed, adding that during meetings with King Abdallah II of Jordan and with Jordan’s Senators on Monday, the Russian side explained in detail its approaches and its position.
