MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. Moscow and Rome have marked the necessity to make more efficient international cooperation on fight against terrorism, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday after the first session of the Russian-Italian working group for fight against new threats and challenges.
"The meeting discussed the situation in Syria, Iraq and Libya, with an emphasis on a need to raise the efficiency of international cooperation in fight against terrorism, first of all given the threat coming from Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra and linked to them groups, on the basis of giving up double standards and in strict compliance with norms of international law," the ministry said.
The session was chaired by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov and his Italian counterpart Vincenzo Amendola. "Special attention was paid to action against the phenomenon of foreign gunmen-terrorists, financing of terrorism and the spread of terrorist ideology," the Foreign Ministry said.
The sides also focused on further prospects for Russian-Italian cooperation on fight against international terrorism in multilateral and bilateral formats. A next session is scheduled in Moscow in 2017, the ministry said.
