MOSCOW, March 26. /TASS/. Moscow welcomes Washington's decision to put Aliaskhab Kebekov, the leader of the Caucasus Emirate militant Jihadist organization, on the list of specially designated nationals, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
Alexander Lukashevich said it was "a responsible approach showing that Russia and the US have prospects for cooperation in the field of counter-terrorism."
The diplomat said he hoped for bilateral cooperation in other spheres.
The US Treasury Department on Wednesday put Kebekov, also known as Ali Abu-Mukhammad, on its list of Specially Designated Nationals, freezing his assets in the United States and prohibiting UScitizens from having any financial dealings with him. The list mainly includes suspected terrorists and drug traffickers.
