MOSCOW, November 18./TASS/. In a telephone conversation with President Vladimir Putin, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, said his country was ready to assist Russia in finding those responsible for the terrorist attack against a Russian Airbus A321 passenger airliner, the Kremlin press service reports.
The crown prince expressed United Arab Emirates’ readiness "to offer necessary assistance in search for and in bringing to responsibility those guilty of that awful tragedy," the report said.
The Crown Prince once again presented "condolences over the barbarous terrorist attack" on behalf of his country’s leadership and the people.

The sides agreed "to maintain close contacts through respective departments and coordinate moves towards implementation of the results of the Vienna sessions of the Syrian Support Group," it added.
