VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. Western countries are gradually returning to active cooperation with Russia in fighting terrorism, as they realize the attempts to boycott Moscow in this sphere threaten their own security, head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department of New Challenges and Threats Ilya Rogachev told TASS on Saturday.
"Today, may western counterparts return to cooperation with Russia in fighting terrorism," the diplomat said. "This situation is pushing them to the understanding that they are punishing themselves by the attempts to boycott us in the anti-terrorist sphere.".
The diplomat has also said that Russia and Turkey should restore the dialogue on anti-terror efforts.
Although Moscow and Ankara now have quite a number of different views on fighting terrorism in Syria and Iraq, the official noted that:
"It is too early yet to organize bilateral commissions on fighting terrorism. "
However, restoration of a dialogue in this sphere is timely," he added.
