    Moscow calls for a common set of rules to counter the spread of terrorism, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow calls for a common set of rules of conduct for countries to tackle the spread of terrorism, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said.

    "There needs to be a clear approach. In Russia's view the information and communication space, the internet need to serve the cause of peace, not the spread of terrorist ideology. We need to establish rules for the countries to behave responsibly online. There is no escaping this," Syromolotov told RIA Novosti.

    He underscored that counterterrorism efforts not only include a military approach, "but countering terrorist financing, countering the drug threat that feeds it, combating organized crime and information security."
