PALANGA, Lithuania, Nov 21, (AFP): The three Baltic states on Friday said they would not join any Western coalition fighting the Islamic State jihadist group if it included their Soviet-era master Russia because of its role in the Ukraine conflict.

French President Francois Hollande had called this week for a broad anti-IS coalition in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks, which killed 129 people and were claimed by IS.
