 MOSCOW, April 23. /TASS/. Russia’s arch foe these days is the Islamic State. Washington claims that the worst threat to world peace is what it invariably refers to as Russia’s ‘aggression’ in Europe and operations by terrorists in Syria and the United States itself. Both countries have had and still have different priorities all along, Russian experts say. As for the struggle against radical Islamism, the United States’ attitude has always been rather dubious.

Russia’s main enemy today is the Islamic State, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview broadcast live on three major radio stations on Wednesday. “They said that it is not a separate organization but the very same Al-Qaeda,” Lavrov said, adding that Al-Qaeda was a brainchild of the United States.
