    The Kremlin spokesman said that Donald Trump's stance on the fight against terrorism was similar to Vladimir Putin's one.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President-elect Donald Trump's words of the need to jointly fight terrorism are in tune with what Russian President Vladimir Putin has been saying for years, the Kremlin said Tuesday.

    "This is in tune with what President Putin has been saying for many, probably 16 or 17, years. President Putin speaks of the need for international cooperation in the fight against this most dangerous challenge of our century," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

    On Monday, Trump wrote on his Twitter that "the civilized world must change thinking," referring to the terror attacks in Turkey, Switzerland and Germany.

    Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov was shot by a gunman at an art gallery exhibition opening in Ankara late on Monday. Earlier in the day, three people were injured during a shooting in a Muslim prayer center in the Switzerland’s city of Zurich, while in Berlin a truck rammed into the crowd at the Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz square, killing 12 people and injuring 48.
