The United States is sending a delegation to Moscow to boost bilateral cooperation in fighting terrorism
The United States is sending a delegation to Moscow to boost bilateral cooperation in fighting terrorism, coordinator for counter-terrorism at the US administration Henry Crumpton told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. Crumpton will take part in a session of the American-Russian inter-departmental group on fighting terrorism in Moscow in early December. "The agenda is very broad," the high-placed U.S. government representative said. "We are taking a very robust delegation because we place so much emphasis on our bilateral relations with Russia. My portion of it - looking at counterterrorism - we'll be looking at terrorism not only in terms of the activities and terrorist groups but also the motivation of our enemies and trying to understand them and this evolving battlefield, global battlefield and how we can cooperate more closely on these issues," he said. He noted "the need to have bonds of personal trust not only in the intelligence field, but also in a diplomatic and the military and law enforcement - across the board." Crumpton said he had discussed Afghan problems with Russian colleagues in late September 2001. "We had very frank discussion. It was clearly helpful in understanding Russian perspective and the Russians support for our efforts in Afghanistan in 2001-2002, so I'm grateful and I hope to build on that during this trip to Moscow," he said.
