MOSCOW, November 19 /TASS/. Russia was one of the first countries to offer its help to the United States in fighting terrorism after the 9/11 terror attacks in New York. It hopes that the tradition of genuine and depoliticized struggle against terrorism will continue, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"I would like to remind the world community that it is not the first time that it has encountered a full-scale terrorist threat. After September 11, Russia was one of the first countries that offered help to the United States in searching for terrorists," she said.
Zakharova added that the help, which Russia offered, was unprecedented for that time in terms of openness and degree of confidence. "Russia is still convinced that only genuine and depoliticized cooperation among countries will make struggle against terrorism effective," the Russian diplomat stressed.
