MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Israel is keen on boosting cooperation with Russia in the war on terror, head of the Knesset’s (Israeli parliament) Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Avi Dichter said at a joint meeting of the Committee and Russia’s Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Committee for Foreign Affairs.
"We have many similar objectives with Russia, including the struggle against terrorism," Dichter stated. "In the next two days (during the delegation’s visit to Russia) we will try to hammer out ways to enhance and expand cooperation."
The Knesset Committee head noted that at present the Russian and Israeli troops were active in the region, their activities not confined to air operations. "We are mostly concerned over security measures in order to avoid any incidents," Dichter elaborated.
According to him, "terror has no boundaries, the whole world knows it." The Israeli MP pointed out that Israel and Russia had both suffered terrorist attacks. "Since terror has no boundaries, the countries fighting terrorism should interact, this is the main key to success," Dichter resumed.
"Many people have a proverb saying that ‘My enemy’s enemy is my friend," he added, noting that "in the Middle East, if we look closer, this proverb doesn’t work."
