"It is necessary to establish direct contact with the French and work with them as allies," Putin said regarding the issue.
Both leaders agreed to ensure military and intelligence cooperation between Russia and France. Putin and Hollande agreed to meet during Hollande's visit to Moscow on November 26.
This is some major political development, Burton explained, adding that the future collaboration of Russian and French intelligence agencies would be very effective in finding more clues to both the terrorist attacks in Paris and the bombing of the Russian Airbus A321 in the Sinai Peninsula.
"I think we're seeing the tremendous amount of international, multinational cooperation as a result of what unfolded in Paris," Burton told Radio Sputnik.
Collaboration among intelligence agencies of different countries happens from time to time, Burton revealed. In the past, Russia's FSB provided valuable information to the CIA that helped the United States to hunt down the Boston Marathon bombers.
Making highly effective explosive devices similar to those that were used during the Paris attacks isn't an easy thing to do. The person who made the explosive devices must have learned the skill on the battlefield, somewhere in Syria or Iraq, and that's why it should be possible for intelligence services to track them down. But more importantly, they need to share information with each other to avoid future large-scale terrorist acts, Burton concluded.
