Naryshkin: no one immune from terrorist attacks
No single country, no single region can be a safe haven, no one is immune from terrorist attacks, Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service chief Sergey Naryshkin said at the 6th Moscow Conference on International Security.
"Terrorist activity in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, in addition to the recent tragic events in London, Paris, Brussels and Stockholm, the latest terrorist attack in St. Petersburg show that no single country, no single region can be a safe haven; no one is immune from terrorist attacks. The whole world is turning into a global danger zone," he stressed.
According to Naryshkin, the threat of terrorism is becoming part of everyday life, especially in large cities. "At least, terrorists themselves are trying to convince us of this along with those who are trying to use terrorism for the sake of their own aims," TASS cited Naryshkin as saying.
"The long-standing existence of a quasi-state of ISIS (terror group outlawed in Russia) is impossible without support from abroad," Naryshkin stressed.
The intelligence chief also noted that "the West’s thoughtless attempts to reshape such special countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria using its own patterns have only resulted in a wave of chaos and violence."
