    Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the latest deadly airport and metro attacks in the Belgian capital of Brussels once again underlines the need for coordinated efforts by the international community in combating the threats of terrorism.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The latest deadly airport and metro attacks in the Belgian capital of Brussels reaffirm the need for joint efforts in combating terrorism, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday.

    “We strongly condemn this barbaric crime against civilians. The incident once again underlines the need for coordinated efforts by the international community in combating the threats of terrorism,” Medvedev said as quoted by the Cabinet’s press service.

    Expressing condolences to Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, Medvedev asked to convey his sincere words of support to the victims’ families and friends and wishes for a speedy recovery to those injured.

    Prosecutors confirmed the deaths of 13 people, and a death toll of up to 21 according to the latest reports, in two suicide blasts at the Brussels Airport in the Zavenem municipality earlier on Tuesday.

    Additional casualties are feared at explosions across up to three metro stations in central Brussels, as a nationwide terror threat has been elevated to the maximum level and all public transport has been suspended.
