The Kremlin supported the proposal of the Fillon to create with Russia the anti-terrorist coalition
MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. The proposal of the candidate in presidents of France from the party “the Republicans” françois Fillon on creating together with Russia the anti-terrorism coalition fit into the ongoing Russia the line of the international fight against terrorism. This was reported to journalists the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.
“It (the proposal – approx. TASS) largely corresponds with the view that dominates in Moscow”, – he said.
Peskov recalled that on the last Friday the meeting of Russian President with the permanent members of the security Council noted “there is no alternative to international cooperation, without which the fight against terrorism can never be really effective.”
Earlier Fillon on his Twitter page expressed the view that the international anti-terrorist coalition should be created to effectively combat Islamic extremism .
“My foreign policy as President will be a priority aimed at the destruction of the group “Islamic state” (IG banned in Russia – approx. TASS), because she threatens us. This will only be possible if all the great powers will be genuine to work together. The greater the discord between the US, Europe, Russia, Iran and the Gulf countries, the further postponed the day of victory over Islamic radicalism. I intend as President to take everywhere, from Washington to Moscow, the diplomatic initiative to create an international coalition against Islamic terrorism,” said Fillon.
