MOSCOW, October 17. /TASS/. Russia and the Arab League will join efforts to settle crises in the region and to battle the Islamic State terrorist group outlawed in Russia, Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Saturday following a meeting of Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, who is also the presidential envoy for the Middle East and Africa, and Secretary General of the Arab League Nabil al-Arabi.
"The sides exchanged views on the situation in the Middle East in North Africa with an accent on the situation in Syria, Libya and Yemen and also on the Israeli-Palestinian settlement," the ministry said. "The sides have confirmed their willingness to step up and to coordinate collective efforts so as to resolve crises in the region through political and diplomatic means and at the same time, to counteract the threat coming from the so-called Islamic State and other terrorist organisations."
Discussing cooperation between Russia and the Arab League, Bogdanov and Nabil al-Arabi reached an agreement to convene a ministerial meeting of the Russian-Arab Cooperation Forum until the yearend in Moscow, the ministry said.
