The head of the SVR Sergey Naryshkin spoke about his trip to the United States
The head of the foreign intelligence Service (SVR) Russia Sergey Naryshkin said during his visit in the United States engaged exclusively in the work within the framework of their professional activities.
“Short answer: in the United States of America I did my professional work of the head of Russian intelligence, period,” said Naryshkin reporters on Tuesday.
So the head of the SVR responded to the question of Interfax about whether there was a connection between his recent trip to the US and the subsequent publication of the so-called “Kremlin report.”
Earlier the New York Daily News reported that Naryshkin during his visit to USA met with the Director of National intelligence Dan Coates and other members of the us intelligence community.
In the press Bureau of the foreign intelligence service refused to comment on reports about the visit of Naryshkin in the United States.
Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov in the program “60 minutes” broadcast channel “Russia-1” (VGTRK) reported that the head of the SVR Sergey Naryshkin visited the United States for consultations with U.S. counterparts in the fight against terrorism.
