MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. The West seems to be arriving at an understanding that the global war on terrorism cannot be won without Russia, Russian president’s envoy for the Middle East and African countries and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Thursday.
Not a single country worldwide is safe from terrorism, he said, adding that in such situation Moscow’s top priority task is to create a global coalition against terrorism.
"This is what Russian President Vladimir Putin called for at the United Nations a year ago and continues to call," Bogdanov said at a conference on Russia-Israel approaches to global politics.
"Western partners begin to reckon with this position of ours. They are gradually becoming aware that no global war on terrorism could be won without Russia," he said. "That is why contacts continue, including at the level of foreign ministers, Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry, and experts to work out mutually acceptable practical measures to impose order in Syria, near Aleppo."
