Russian President Vladimir Putin quotes Holy Quran

17 September 2019

During his visit to Ankara for a trilateral summit of Russia, Iran and Turkey on the Syrian settlement Russian President Vladimir Putin quoted the Quran twice.



- Being here in Turkey, a country with a predominantly Muslim population, I cannot help but recall the lines from the Holy Quran: "And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. This stresses: what divides people, leads to conflicts, should go by the wayside", - said, in particular, the Russian leader during the discussion of drone attacks on Saudi oil facilities. Putin urged to remember "who first started bombing Yemen."



- And then we will see where it started, - he said.



- As for the help to Saudi Arabia - The Holy  Quran says any kind of violence is unacceptable, except for the protection of your kin. To protect your kin, your country, we will provide assistance to Saudi Arabia, - Putin said offering to the country's leadership to buy the Russian S-300 or S-400 systems.
