Lawmakers said they were deeply concerned over sharp escalation of the situation in Iraq and Syria related to intensification of terrorist actions that resulted in brutal and massive extermination of religious and ethnic minorities.The lower house noted that foreign financial and material support to emerging major terrorist groupings and large-scale terrorist activity was obvious. “Destabilisation of the situation in the Middle East mainly resulted from current foreign political course of Western states which neglect the principles of international law, impose their scenarios of home policy to sovereign countries, refuse to recognise a multi-polar world order, work out common approaches agreed with all representatives of the world community to settle global problems. All this leads to an irreparable tragedy and numerous casualties among civilians,” the Russian parliament’s lower house stated.
In this regard, the State Duma appealed to the world community “to stop and eradicate the evil of international terrorism threatening to the whole civilised humankind” as quickly as possible and to develop common approaches to combat it in the Middle East region and the world in general.
