FBI/KGB "counter-terrorism" pact.
The 1994 FBI-KGB accord allowed the FBI to establish an attache office in Moscow and Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB, another KGB successor organization) to send agents to train at the FBI's academy in Quantico, Virginia. During an early December visit to Moscow, current FBI Director Robert Mueller has built on that agreement by signing a "counter-terrorism" pact with the FSB.
"FSB director Nikolai Patrushev met with FBI head Robert Mueller, who was on a visit to Moscow, to sign the deal, which draws out plans for cooperation between the two security bodies," reported the December 6 Moscow News. "A memorandum has been signed that will lay out the specifics of our cooperation in a number of directions, first and foremost ... the fight against international terrorism, the fight against crimes using weapons of mass destruction, and other directions," explained Patrushev.
