Great Britain links terrorism in Chechnya to international terrorism, Catherine MacKenzie, First Secretary of the United Kingdom Mission to the UN, told RIA Novosti in a telephone interview.
She confirmed that Britain, Russia and the US had joined forces on Friday to make an inquiry about the possibility of adding Basayev's name into the list of the UN Security Council's Committee on Sanctions against Taliban, Al-Qaeda and affiliated persons and organizations falling under corresponding resolutions.
Asked about Britain's attitude towards terrorism in Russia in general and in Chechnya in particular, Ms. MacKenzie stressed: We don't have any special views on terrorism in this or that country. Our attitude to terrorism in general does not vary. We think terrorism is inadmissible no matter what circumstances and cannot be justified, she added.
