MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin hopes for the constructive discussion of the problems of terrorism and refugees at the G20 summit in Turkey, which will be backed by the final document. He said as much in an interview with the Interfax and Anadolu news agencies.
"I am sure that the coming discussion will contribute to the practical solution of these issues and will be backed by a final document reflecting our common approaches to combating terrorism and resolving the refugee crisis," he said.
Putin noted that the fight against terrorism and the problem of refugees would be discussed at the G20 Summit at the proposal of the Turkish Presidency. "In our opinion, there is a direct relationship between these issues and the summit’s agenda. Sustainable development, economic growth, global trade expansion, investments, and employment greatly depend on how successful the international community is in responding to today’s most urgent challenge - terrorism and the problem of refugees that stems from chaos and violence. Hundreds of thousands of refugees are already in Europe and other countries, who are trying to save their lives and the lives of their close ones, and still more are on their way," he said.
Meanwhile, presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told reports that there were plans to discuss the problem of terrorism and refugee crisis during the working luncheon of the G20 leaders on the first day of the summit, November 15. "There will be an exchange of views on threats emanating from terrorist groups, above all, from Islamic State (IS) [banned in Russia]. The parties will discuss possible ways of cooperation in the fight against the spread of terrorism and extremism in the Middle East and North Africa," he said. As for the issue of refugees, it will affect mostly migrants from the war-torn regions, Ushakov added.
