TASHKENT, June 17. /ITAR-TASS/. A senior official in Russia's state security service has hailed past co-operation with the US intelligence community, expressing hope that strains over Ukraine will not hinder the partnership.“We have always been in contact,” said Federal Security Service (FSB) Deputy Director Sergei Smirnov. “But when certain events have taken place, our joint activity has subsided”.
“We communicate in fight against terrorism and in the past decade, the process of interaction has been on the rise,” he said.
“We exchange official representatives, and now delegations, even directors, continue to make reciprocal visits,” he added. “I hope co-operation will not be cut off, or that latest events will not influence it.”
Smirnov had words of gratitude for US officers working with Russian special agencies before the Winter Olympic Games in resort city Sochi.
“We did a great job ahead of the Olympics,” the Russian officer said. “We are grateful for the information support provided by US special services.”
