Algeria joins FSB databank on foreign terrorists, notes Russian top diplomat
Algeria has joined the international databank on foreign terrorists created by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at talks with his Algerian counterpart Abdelkader Massahel on Monday.
"This is one more step towards closer cooperation on thwarting the terrorist threat," the top diplomat said. Lavrov said both countries' counterterrorism channels encompassed not only the foreign ministries, but also law enforcement agencies and security councils."
In October 2017, FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov said 34 intelligence services from 26 countries had joined the FSB-initiated international databank on combatting terrorism.
