ROME, November 14. /TASS/. Europe should lift sanctions from Russia, the only nation engaged in a struggle against the Islamic State (IS), the leader of the Italian opposition party Northern League, Matteo Salvini, said on Saturday.
"Europe should remove sanctions from Russia - the only country taking up arms to battle the Islamic State," Salvini said. "Now the world should gather at the same table - the United States, Russia, India, China and the European Union - to seek a solution to a terror threat."
The Italian politician is certain that now is not the time to "confront Moscow."
A series of terror attacks rocked Paris on Friday evening with shootings, bomb blasts and hostage taking. Hostages were taken at the Bataclan concert hall where 1,500 people gathered for a rock concert and almost simultaneously three suicide bombers blew themselves up next to the Stade de France stadium where a football match between French and German national teams was in the full swing. Besides, terrorists opened fire at people in popular nightlife spots - cafes, bars and restaurants crowded at that time. Latest reports said that the death toll reached 128; another 250 are injured.
President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency in the country and closed the state borders. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks.
