Putin at BRICS meeting: 'Only united efforts can deal with terror threat, refugee crisis'

Coping with the terrorist threat and assisting refugees is only possible by combined efforts, Russian President Vladimir Putin said during an informal meeting of the leaders of the BRICS countries, which is running on the margins of the G20 summit in Antalya.

"We all understand perfectly well that coping with the terrorist threat and helping millions of people who have lost their homes, is possible only by combining the efforts of the entire world community," Putin said.

"As for the threat of terrorism, we have all seen the horror that took place in Paris. We sympathize with the people affected,” the Russian president added.

We always stand for joining efforts to effectively deal with the terrorist threat."
