    Vladimir Putin said that Russia is yet again calling on the international community to create a joint counterterrorism front which would base its actions on the international law.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia is yet again calling on the international community to create a joint counterterrorism front which would base its actions on the international law, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

    "Today we are again facing the destructive barbaric ideology and we do not have the right to allow that the newly found obscurantists reach their goals. We need to throw away all arguments and differences to create one powerful fist, a united antiterrorist front which would act on the basis of international law and under the UN auspices," Putin said, addressing the Russian Parliament, the Federal Assembly.

    The president added that "every civilized state is now obliged to contribute to the defeat of terrorism."
