Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday said that the attacks in Paris showed the need for his proposal for an international anti-terror coalition to be realised.

 

“I think that not only we are able, but it is also indispensible” to form an international anti-terrorist coalition, Putin told reporters after the G20 summit in the Turkish resort of Antalya. “I spoke about this at the United Nations… and the tragic events that followed have confirmed that we were right.”
