The Islamic world can view Moscow as a reliable friend and partner ready to provide assistance in solving pressing problems, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his address to the participants of the meeting of the Group of Strategic Vision "Russia-Islamic World" on Friday.

The president noted that terrorists are trying to destabilize the situation in the region. "A powerful blow to terrorists was dealt with Russia’s participation," the address said.
