Russia tries to reassure Saudi Arabia over Syria air strikes

Vladimir Putin attempting to reassure the Saudi government that it is only targeting IS, despite the fact that strikes have taken place on other groups, including areas that are allegedly controlled by Jabhat al-Nusrah as previously posted on The WIDER View.

Russia has said previously that it is targeting ISIS, al-Nusra Front (Jabhat al-Nusrah) and other terrorist groups as recognized by the U.N. Security Council or Russian law.

Quite what ‘other terrorist groups’ means is vague at best but will almost certainly contain Chechen or Chechen led groups.
