FLORENCE, November 27. /TASS/. No one doubts that Russia should take part in the anti-Islamic State coalition since that terrorist organization is real big threat to the entire world, Andrea Manciulli, who leads the Italian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told TASS on Friday.
"Russia’s participation in the anti-Islamic State coalition would be a very positive factor," Manciulli, who was an organizer of a seminar of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s special group on the Mediterranean and Middle East regions. "[French President] Francois Hollande has made a major step, the United States is working on conditions for cooperation. No one now has any doubts that Russia’s participation in the anti-terrorist efforts is needed."
He stressed that the Islamic State threat required joint efforts that go beyond national interests. He also noted it was vital to avoid contradistinguishing the Islamic and non-Islamic worlds "because this is what terrorists are seeking."
"That is why it is vitally important to involve Islamic states, ‘good Islam,’ into anti-terrorist efforts," he underscored.
Anti-terrorist efforts were a central topic of the seminar. Participants discussed such aspects as financing of terrorism, involvement of women into terrorist activities, and energy perspectives of North African and Middle East countries, development of relations between Europe and the Middle East. A separate panel discussion was dedicated to the topic ‘Russia, Iran and the new regional order.’
The seminar was attended by lawmakers from NATO member countries and from such countries as Algeria, Israel, Morocco, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Pakistan.
