MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. The head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), John Brennan, has not had any meetings in the Kremlin most recently, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"I can say nothing on this, there were no contacts in the Kremlin," Peskov said, adding that it is up to Brennan’s possible vis-a-vis to comment on this.
Some media reports said that Brennan visited Russia in early March and held meetings in the Kremlin.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister in charge of antiterrorism issues Oleg Syromolotov told reporters on Monday that John Brennan visited Moscow, but the visit was unrelated to the Russian forces’ withdrawal from Syria.
According to Syromolotov, the CIA head talked to his colleagues from Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB). He said that during the visit the sides focused mainly on Russia-US confidence building matters.
