MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) has confirmed it intends to restore contacts with British special services.

Contacts are being restored with British special services to ensure security at the winter Olympic and Paralymic Games in Sochi, FSB sources told Itar-Tass on Friday.

Mi6 Chief Sir John Sawers said on Thursday that Britain would develop intelligence cooperation with Russia.

Cooperation will be resumed for the first time since the row over the 2006 death of Alexander Litvinenko in London.

Sir Sawers made it clear that Britain and Russia cooperated in ensuring security at the Olympic Games in Sochi.

“We passed the Olympic flame on from London (which hosted the 2012 Olympic Games) to Sochi, and we have a certain responsibility there, and we will take it forward step by step,” he said.
