 Putin warns world of 'fragile peace'

 
MOSCOW 9 May (ANA) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said world peace is 'very fragile' as he addressed the traditional parade to commemorate the victory over Nazi Germany in the Second World War.
 
Russia showcased some of its most modern armaments at the annual Victory Day parade in Moscow's Red Square.
 
The Russian President was joined by foreign dignitaries including Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Serbia President Aleksandar Vucic.
 
In a speech at the solemn event, he warned: 'Mankind has to realise that peace is very fragile.
 
'Russia is open to dialogue on all different aspects of global security.'
 
The annual parade marks the tens of millions of Soviet soldiers and civilians who died in the Second World War, but it came at a period of unprecedented tension in the world since the end of the Cold War.
 
Some 13,000 servicemen and women marched across Red Square as Putin watched from close to Lenin's mausoleum.(ANA)
