MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. Russia cannot but feel surprised the Australian intelligence has made public some evidence allegedly confirming the Islamic State’s intention to make a dirty ‘nuclear bomb,’ Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.
"We have heard the rumors the Australian intelligence has at its disposal some evidence confirming the Islamic State possesses enough radioactive materials for making a ‘dirty bomb.’ It is very strange an intelligence service makes such findings public," Lavrov said.
In his opinion this kind of information should be shared through confidential channels with those who are capable of preventing the crime from happening.
"In any case this merely confirms one simple thing: to effectively resist the terrorist threat, the more so the one coming from the IS, there should be genuine pooling of efforts relying on international law, with due regard for the role of the UN Security Council and relying on a network of partnership-like relations, including those among secret services," Lavrov believes.
