KUWAIT CITY, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf should build barriers to terrorism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Speaking at the 3rd ministerial meeting of the Russia-CCASG Strategic Dialogue, Lavrov said, “Instability in Syria arouses concern. It attracts all-types radicals, who positioned themselves outside the law. We should jointly fight terrorism. We see its risks outside Syria - in Iraq and Lebanon.”
“We express solidarity with those who can turn out to be in the crosshairs of terrorists,” the Russian minister said, adding “Despite the disagreements on Syria, we talk openly and hide nothing.”
