Baku. 26 April. REPORT.AZ/ "Unfortunately, we are losing the battle against violent extremism in the Middle East, Central Asia and even in Europe."

Report informs, the former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said, speaking at the plenary session on the prevention of violent extremism, in the framework of the VII Global Forum of the UN Global Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) in Baku.

Former French Prime Minister stressed that violent extremism is a common, global threat and to deal with it is necessary to implement a common economic development strategy. He welcomed the implementation of the project of the New Silk Road, which will create new infrastructure, thereby creating stability in regions faced with violent extremism.
