“We have spoken of our contribution to supporting the Iraqi government in their fight against terrorists, ensuring security of their state. In a similar way we provide military and other kind of assistance to Syria that is also facing a serious terrorist threat, maybe to a lesser degree. We also provide assistance to our partners in Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Jordan. So we have something to contribute to the common efforts,” Lavrov said.
No double standards in the fight against terrorists are acceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the sidelines of an international conference on Iraq in the French capital on Monday.
“We have long been raising the issue of terrorist activity that has dramatically intensified in the Middle East and in North Africa after the “Arab spring” events, after the goals of overthrowing the regimes were set above the general goals of preventing the terrorism threat spread,” he said.
"This also refers to such a phenomenon as terrorist organizations that occpupy oilfields and securely sell oil through channels established by them," he pointed out.
"An emphasis must be laid on the need to prevent a swelling of the ranks of a terrorist international which young people readily join because of bad socio-economic conditions," Lavrov emphasized.
"Extremists also make use of the Palestinian problem that remains unresolvd for decades, pointing to an unfair attitude to the Arabs in the Middle East," Russia's Foreign Minister added.
