ROME, May 11. /TASS/. Russia is in talks with the European Union on consolidating databases on citizens’ movement to track terrorists, but Brussels has so far refused to do so, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov told TASS.
"We have a single database on the movement of individuals on all types of transport, including intercity buses. Currently, we cannot reach an agreement with the EU on connecting our system with their mechanisms, because under their legislation, disclosing personal data is prohibited," the diplomat explained.
"These consultations have been going on for two years now, since they want to have our passengers’ data, but we reply that there must be a unified system to do that," Syromolotov added.
