MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. Russia and the European Union (EU) will continue contacts in the sphere of fighting terrorism, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday commenting on the results of the meeting between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov, EU Deputy Secretary General for Common Security and Defense Policy Pedro Serrano and Director of Justice and Home Affairs in EU’s Council Secretariat Gilles de Kerchove.
"The sides comprehensively exchanged opinions on relevant issues of Russian-EU dialogue in the counter-terrorist sphere," the foreign ministry said. "In particular, they discussed prospects of pragmatic cooperation between Russia and EU in the sphere of fighting ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, former name of Islamic State terrorist organization banned in Russia] threats, countering foreign terrorist militants, radicalization and violent extremism, cutting off sources of financing terrorism, as well as several aspects of ensuring air security," the ministry added.
"Russia and EU confirmed their similarity in approaches to importance of joining efforts of the international community in the fight against the global terrorism threat on the basis of international law, UN Charter and relevant UN Security Council resolutions," the foreign ministry noted.
The ministry said that contacts with EU on counter-terrorism "were held in the constructive atmosphere and recognized as mutually beneficial by both sides." "An agreement was reached to continue them," the Russian Foreign Ministry concluded.
