MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. The security of many Arab states is in jeopardy today, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a welcome address to the heads of state and government of the Arab League countries taking part in a summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
"Unfortunately, the security of many Arab countries today is under threat due to activation of extremist and terrorist organizations that seize entire cities and provinces causing hundreds of thousands of civilians to suffer and destroying the priceless cultural heritage of humankind," Putin said in the document posted on the presidential website.
Expressing regret, he said "Russia resolutely condemns these criminal actions having no justifications."
"We proceed from the fact that effective fight against terror is impossible without a general improvement of the regional situation. In this connection, we consider the soonest possible settlement of the crisis situations in Syria, Libya, Yemen on the basis of the principles of international law, by means of broad dialogue and search for national accord to be rather important," Putin said.
