    Russia is ready to participate in a broad international anti-terrorist front being spearheaded by the UN, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said Tuesday.

    GROZNY (Sputnik) – Russia is ready to participate in the creation of a broad international anti-terrorist front in which the UN is playing a lead role, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said Tuesday; the 'front' seeks to uphold equal rights and the principle of non-interference.

    “We are convinced that the creation of a broad anti-terrorist front on the basis of the norms and principles of international law with the UN [providing a] central coordinating role would be in the interests of all the participants of our meeting,” Patrushev said during the VII International Meeting of High Representatives on security issues held in Russia’s southern republic of Chechnya.

    He said that Russia would be ready for joint work in which the group would maintain respect for equal rights, as well as the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states and not interfere in their domestic affairs.
