Putin: Certain States Play Into Hands of Terrorists

A greeting message of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the participants of the 9th International Meeting of High Representatives for Security Issues in Sochi was delivered by Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev.

Some countries are increasingly trying to ignore universally recognized norms of international law, using military force bypassing the UN Security Council, this plays into the hands of terrorists, the message reads, Sputnik reported.
“The problems of ensuring global and regional security today are especially acute, largely due to the fact that some members of the world community are increasingly trying to ignore the universally recognized norms and principles of international law, resort to the use of military force bypassing the UN Security Council and refuse to take part in talks as a key tool for resolving interstate disputes,” Putin said.
“This, in turn, generates political and social instability, plays into the hands of the forces of terrorism, extremism, transnational crime, leading to an escalation of local conflicts and crises,” he said.
The Russian president pointed out that the current meeting under the auspices of the United Nations Security Council provides an opportunity to discuss the ways to deal with a number of challenges to international security.
Putin said Russia is ready for close security cooperation with foreign partners in multilateral and bilateral formats.
Speaking with French President Emmanuel Macron earlier this week, Putin condemned the recent US-led coalition’s airstrike on Syria, emphasizing that they were conducted in violation of international law and have complicated the situation in the Middle Eastern country.
The United States, the United Kingdom and France carried out strikes on Syria on April 14 following reports of an alleged chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma. Damascus has said the chemical attack was staged, and condemned the western strikes.
