MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In April, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov met with EU's deputy head of common security and defense policy Pedro Serrano and counterterrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove in Brussels. The sides discussed further Russia-EU cooperation against terrorism.
"We have planned a continuation this fall, it will be held in Moscow and include the same participants. There is, of course, an ongoing exchange of experience," Chizhov told RIA Novosti.
The recent terrorist attack in Istanbul proves the importance of responding to information from other countries about such threats and the need for the revival of communication channels between Russia andthe EU.
