According to his opinion, it is unacceptable to use extremists for political purposes.

Double standards in the fight against terrorism are unacceptable, extremists can not be divided into “good” and “bad” and used for political purposes, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his opinion. According to the head of the state, the latest jihadist attack in different parts of the world once again demonstrated that the problem could be solved only by joint efforts based on international law.

“I want to emphasize that the recent terrorist attacks in various regions of the world showed that it is possible to combat terrorism only together on the basis of norms and principles of international law with the coordinating role of the UN. There should be no double standards, it is impossible to divide terrorists into “good” and “bad”. And, of course, it is unacceptable and extremely dangerous to use terrorist and radical extremist groups for political or geopolitical interests,” he said in the interview.

Before his visit to Baku, Vladimir Putin reminded that Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran were actively using and promoting those principles in the world, seeking to expand and strengthen political cooperation and interaction both of law enforcement officers and intelligence agencies.

Earlier, Putin said that Russia was ready for close international cooperation to combat extremism, terrorism and illegal migration. That statement of the Russian leader was announced in Grozny at the opening meeting of high representatives responsible for security issues.
