MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. The Islamic State terrorist group is responsible for the "export" of terrorist crimes to other countries, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"ISIL is a terrorist organization and this terrorist organization, as well as other [terrorist] groups such as [Jabhat] al-Nusra are obviously the center of terrorism on the territories controlled by them and they undoubtedly are responsible for the export of terrorism from this region and other countries," he said.
Russia has been taking and will take further anti-terror efforts in strict compliance with international law, Russian president’ press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
"Russia has been taking all of its anti-terror efforts in strict compliance with the norms and principles of international law. We will keep to this principle in our further efforts — this is the cornerstone principle," Peskov told journalists.
He refrained from answering the question whether Russia would hold a special operation abroad to expose those who had been behind the terrorist attack on a Russian passenger plane in Egypt. "I said all I had to say," the Kremlin spokesman underscored.
Russia’s security services have embarked on fulfilling President Vladimir Putin’s order to find those responsible for the terror act on board Russia’s A321 airliner over Sinai, Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"The security services after a night meeting have, naturally, embarked on fulfilling the order issued by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and head of state," the presidential press secretary said.
However, he declined to give the details, adding: "The information in this case can only be provided within the framework of security services."
"Let me emphasize again: the president has instructed our special services to take measures to identify all those who are complicit in organizing this horrible terrorist act. He has ordered to search for these people irrespective of geography, without any limitation period and eliminate all these persons," Peskov said.
