GENEVA, March 22. /TASS/. The terrorist attacks in Brussels should be a signal to the healthy forces in Syria and in the Middle East on the need to join forces for the fight against terrorism, Alexey Borodavkin, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN Office and other international organizations in Geneva, told TASS on Tuesday.
"Terrorists are trying to destabilize the situation in the world, in the Middle East and North Africa and in Europe and for that end they try to carry out terrorist attacks," Borodavkin said. "We are offering sympathy to the Belgian people and express solidarity. We hope that the terrorist attacks in Brussels will be another signal to all healthy forces both in Syria and in the Middle East to join forces for the war against terrorism."
When asked whether the Brussels explosions could disrupt or complicate the intra-Syrian talks and another round of discussions on security and stability in the Trans-Caucasus region that has got underway in Geneva on Tuesday, Borodavkin noted he saw no direct connection between these events. "I see no direct connection," he said.
