Russian President Vladimir Putin is confident that joint work to smash terrorists in Syria will be successful, TASS reported.

"I am confident that we will finally complete joint work to defeat the Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS. We’ve got what unites us all," the Russian leader stressed.

"And emphasis should be put not on what is a matter of dispute, but on what is common interest. Then we’ll succeed," he said at a plenary meeting of the Russian Energy Week forum.
