Meeting between heads of Russian and US intelligence agencies was "useful," says Lavrov



A meeting between Russian and US intelligence chiefs in November was "useful" but did not produce any "breakthroughs," said Russia's foreign minister on Wednesday.


Sergey Naryshkin, director of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service, and William Burns, CIA director, met at the headquarters of Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization in Ankara on November 14.


"They know that we will respond seriously to serious requests: Biden asked Putin for Naryshkin to meet with Burns, and the meeting took place," Sergey Lavrov said during a press conference on the results of Russia’s diplomatic activities in 2022.


"Yes, it was quite serious and useful, although it did not bring any breakthroughs," he said.


"We did not break this dialogue. We have not broken off any of the areas of our cooperation. The USA broke them off," said Lavrov. "We are not going to run after them and say let’s be friends again."

On Tuesday, Naryshkin said that another meeting with Burns was possible, according to Russian state news agency TASS.


Asked whether another such meeting could take place, Naryshkin said "this is possible," adding the time for a new potential meeting would be determined "by agreement" between the parties, according to TASS.
