    SOCHI, August 18 (RIA Novosti) - To eradicate terrorism, the use of force is not enough, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

    "We are convinced that to eradicate this evil, forceful measures alone are not enough," Putin told journalists after meeting with King of Jordan Abdullah II. "And identifying Islam, a great world religion, with terrorism, is of course unacceptable."
