"And this is a weakness – not our weakness, but the weakness of the world, which for three years now has not dared to treat terrorists exactly as they deserve. Terror must lose everywhere – in any conditions, on any continent. ... I am grateful to everyone who helps us. But we need more determination. And it is from the leaders of the world," the President emphasized.
