WASHINGTON, December 11 (Sputnik) — None of the US embassies or posts around the world have asked for additional security assistance amid fears of revenge attacks on foreign US facilities, following the release of the CIA's interrogation report, Department of State spokesperson Jen Psaki said.

"We clearly are in touch with our embassies and posts around the world and certainly we're working closely with [foreign] governments as well," Psaki said Wednesday. "At this time none of our posts have asked for additional resources from Washington or from the military."

Ahead of the release of the previously covert CIA details, outlining how the United States interrogated alleged al-Qaeda terrorists after 9/11, the US said that it was taking greater security precautions to ensure that its foreign embassies and posts were secure.

Psaki said that the US foreign posts are working with local host governments in case of any threats on the ground, confirming that the State Department was closely monitoring their situation.

Following the release of the CIA report, US foreign missions in Pakistan, Thailand and Afghanistan issued security warnings to US citizens traveling to those countries.

On Tuesday, the US Senate Select Intelligence Committee released a 500-page report summary, detailing their investigation into the CIA interrogation techniques used on alleged al-Qaeda agents after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The full report contains 6,300 pages describing the interrogation techniques, including waterboarding, threats of sexual assault, forced nudity, prolonged sleep deprivation, use of stress positions, mock executions, threats against children and family, use of power drills and many other torture practices that the CIA carried out in detention centers worldwide.
