Mali act confirms terrorism has no boundaries - Medvedev

Bamako tragedy once again confirms terrorism has no boundaries, Dmitry Medvedev says.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that the latest terrorist attack in Mali once again confirmed the scope of the spread of the terrorist threat in the world, calling on all countries that have encountered this evil to coordinate their efforts in fighting it.

"The tragic incident in Mali, where a large number of people, including six citizens of the Russian Federation, died at a hotel, once again confirmed that terrorism has no boundaries," Medvedev said at a meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Kuala Lumpur.

"We need to develop our joint work in order to fight against Islamic State as a terrorist factor. But we need to do it in close coordination and seeking to agree upon all efforts - both political and military - that states affected by terrorism are making," the Russian prime minister said.
