GORKI, March 23. /TASS/. Terrorist attacks in Brussels will cause a major impact on European policies and Russia, too, may have to reconsider a number of its priorities, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Wednesday.
"It is absolutely clear that such terrorist attacks are never without consequences. They will surely cause an impact on the European Union’s policies and, possibly, on our own decisions. Certainly, we will have in mind everything that happened in identifying foreign policy priorities and in making decisions in the sphere of economics," Medvedev said.
According to the official, the Brussels attack is a challenge to the whole civilized world that has shown how vulnerable Europe has become and that it is necessary to combat terrorism by joint efforts.
"I cannot but say a couple of words about the current situation, especially in the context of yesterday’s (Tuesday) events in Brussels. Certainly, it’s a challenge to the whole civilized world, a barbarous terror act that has shown how vulnerable Europe has become and that mutual understanding is urgently needed among different states in Europe and generally among all responsible states in order to prevent such terror acts in the future and fight the evil that at present manifests itself in international terrorism," Medvedev said.
At least 31 people were killed and over 260 were injured in the explosions that rocked Brussels airport and metro station on Tuesday morning.
