Russia eyes security cooperation on Sochi Olympics

MOSCOW, May 16 (Xinhua) -- Russia was willing to cooperate with foreign special services to ensure safety of the Sochi Winter Olympics, a high-ranking diplomat said Thursday.

Russia was "open to such cooperation" with special services on security at the upcoming 2014 Sochi games, the Foreign Ministry's Ambassador at Large Valery Kuzmin told reporters.

"International scandals and conflicts" will not affect the Sochi games and the composition of their participants, Kuzmin added.

The foreign ministry on Wednesday lodged a formal protest with the U.S. ambassador to Moscow following the detention of a CIA agent who worked under the disguise of the embassy's third secretary and allegedly offered up to 1 million U.S. dollars to the Russian intelligence officer.

During a recent telephone conversation, President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Barack Obama pledged to strengthen bilateral cooperation, including that between security services when fighting international terrorism.
