Moscow and Washington preparing anti-terror meeting

Russia and the United States are laying groundwork for a meeting on anti-terror fight at the level of deputies of top Russian and US diplomats, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said.

"The effort is underway, there is the proposal and we have accepted it. Now it is being discussed. The date and the venue are also being considered. Just now we are solving the issue of the date," TASS cited the diplomat as saying.

Speaking on the level of the upcoming dialogue, Syromolotov said he and US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan would attend the meeting.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton said after the Moscow talks with Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev last month that the Russian-US anti-terror meeting would be held in December.
