In the coming months, the two countries can potentially engage in a dialogue on counterterrorism.
The United States and the Russian Federation may begin cooperation in the fight against terrorism. This was stated by the National Security Assistant to the President of the United States Robert O’Brien to The Washington Post
on Sunday, August 2.
“The area of potential cooperation with Russia is counterterrorism. Both Russia and the United States have had their homelands attacked by violent extremists,” the official said.
O’Brien added that U.S. officials are likely to engage with their Russian intelligence and law enforcement counterparts on the mentioned issue in the coming months.
Earlier, the White House and the Kremlin agreed to continue bilateral cooperation
in the fight against terrorism.
Also, last year, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, said that Moscow and Washington have close positions
on many issues.
