    There is no alternative to joint fight against terrorism, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York in September 2015, Putin called on the international community to create a united anti-terrorist front based on international law and acting under UN auspices. However, such a joint coalition has not been created so far despite Moscow repeatedly calling for it.

    "The initiative we put forward of forming a broad front in the fight against terrorism must be implemented. Unfortunately, this front has not been created so far, but there is no alternative to it," Putin said at the Primakov Readings International Forum.
