JERUSALEM, June 7. /TASS/. Radical Islamists are trying to take over the Middle East to later become a threat for the entire world, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman ahead of his visit to Moscow marking 25 years after the two countries restored diplomatic relations.
"Islamists are attempting to destroy and have already destroyed several states in our region. They are trying to take over the whole region completely and after achieving the goal to start threatening the entire world. Israel is in the epicenter of this storm, but incredible as it may seem, Israel is the most reliable and stable place and possibly, the only such place in the Middle East," Netanyahu said.
The Israeli prime minister has named three positions thanks to which the world community can defeat international terrorism. He said there is a need "to fight against terror by cooperating at an international level, to prevent the emergence of territorial bases and not to allow terrorists to achieve success." "This is the way towards fight against terror and victory over it," Netanyahu stressed.
