KAZAN, May 26. /TASS/. Participants in the session of the Group of Strategic Vision "Russia - Islamic World" will discuss the situation in the Middle East and fight against terrorism and extremism, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Ambassador-at-Large Konstantin Shuvalov told TASS on Thursday.

"The Group of Strategic Vision ‘Russia - Islamic World’ resumed working last year. Another session took place in June last year after a long pause. Today, after a year, we welcome members of the group in Kazan," Shuvalov said.

The main task of the group is to use reserves "that boost work not only at governmental but also at non-governmental level in Muslim countries in the interests of developing their relations with Russia and establishing broader humanitarian ties," he added.

"We expect the second session, on the one hand, will sum up the results of the year that has already passed, will set priorities for future activities," Shuvalov noted. "Along with that, the discussion will be held on the situation in the Middle East, a very worrisome situation. We will also discuss issues of fighting against extremism and terrorism."

The diplomat noted that members of the group "Russia - Islamic World" are politicians, "retired but authoritative politicians," representatives of academic circles, leaders of religious organizations. "We hope that the composition of the group will change in the future, new people ready to work in their countries will come," he concluded.

The session of the Group of Strategic Vision "Russia - Islamic World" will take place in Kazan on May 25-28. Among participants in the session will be representatives of 30 countries and leading Russian experts.
