KUALA LUMPUR, November 22. /TASS/. Really consolidated efforts are needed to counter terrorist threat, with no discrimination among the allies into one’s own or somebody else’s, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told journalists on Sunday, commenting on the U.S. president’s pronouncements about Russia’s role in the Syrian conflict.
"The Islamic State (a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) has grown that strong due to the irresponsible policy of the United States. Instead of focusing common efforts on countering terrorism, the United States and its allies plunged into struggle against Syria’s legitimate President Bashar Assad," Medvedev said before flying to Phnom Penh. "Reasonable policy in the countries of the Middle East, whether it be Syria, Egypt or Iraq, for all countries, including the United States, is to be in supporting the legitimate authorities capable of ensuring the state’s integrity but not in shaking the situation.
In his words, there were sad examples of such irresponsible policy. "Once, the United States was behind Al Qaeda growth that led to the 9/11 tragedy. These lessons only prove that consolidated efforts are needed against terrorist threat, without dividing allies into one’s own and somebody else’s," he stressed.
