“As far as I know, some information on the aircraft of our side gave us partners, the competent authorities are working with her,’ he said. – The circumstances of this tragedy are being discussed at various levels with the British side”.
Rogachev added that Russia has for years consistently urged the partners “to join efforts against the common for all of us the threat of terrorism, to cooperate in good faith, on a truly collective basis, without politicization and ideologization of the problem, without the introduction of “double standards”. “In the current environment, in our view, such cooperation becomes imperative”, he stressed.
At the same time, the diplomat indicated that currently bilateral diplomatic contacts with the US and the EU on counter-terrorism suspended on their initiative. “How long are they going to punish themselves, to refuse to accept our arguments, to explain cooperation in the field of anti-terror having to do with this conditions? Will they change their approaches to combating terrorism in Syria and Iraq? From our side, anyway, the door remains open,” he added.
“The sincere pursuit of a common goal should make us allies,” he said Rogachev.
“Perhaps it’s revenge”
Rogachev believes that the attack on Board the A321 may be revenge for the struggle with the Russian terrorist group “Islamic state”, but the inaction in the fight against terrorists would lead to even more serious consequences in the future.
Russia is not the first time confronted with the barbaric terrorist crimes, often for no apparent reason, external or internal, as with the explosion at the railway station in Volgograd in late 2013. We are nothing and no one forgot
“Maybe this is revenge for our participation in combat (forbidden on the territory of the Russian Federation terrorist group) “Islamic state” in Syria, he said. But I have no doubt that if nothing is done, then the terrorist threat will become much more serious proportions”.
“That will wait, when the Islamists knock at the door – literally? – it asked a question. – I am convinced that the correct answer only one more determined efforts in the fight against terror; we must cut this cancer until it covered “only” half of Syria and half of Iraq.”
“Islamic state” (ISIS) – an Islamist terrorist organization operating inside Iraq and Syria. Established on 15 October 2006 by the merger of 11 radical Sunni groups. The core group forming the militants, who fought with American troops during their stay in Iraq and with the forces of the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
