UNITED NATIONS: President Vladimir Putin has urged the creation of a broad anti-terror coalition that would include the Syrian government troops.

Addressing the U.N. General Assembly, Putin said it was a “huge mistake” not to engage the Syrian army in the fight against the Islamic State group.

He also criticized the West for arming “moderate” rebels in Syria, saying they later come to join the Islamic State terror group.

Without naming the United States, he says a “single center of dominance has emerged after the end of Cold War,” and attempts have been made to revise the U.N. role.
