Russia's top detective authority signs memo with Israel police

Russia's Investigative Committee and the Israeli police have signed a memorandum of understanding on joint action against terrorism, corruption, illegal migration and other forms of crime.

"A delegation of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation that is led by Chairman Alexander Bastrykin is on an official visit to the State of Israel," Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Interfax.

The memorandum was signed during a meeting between Bastrykin and Manny Yitzhaki, head of one of the divisions of the Israeli police service, Markin said.

"In this memorandum, the parties express a desire to cooperate in various spheres, including combating terrorism- and extremism-related crimes, human trafficking, illegal migration, financial crimes and corruption, and in other fields," the spokesman said.

"The Russian delegation has been familiarized with the structure of the Israeli police force, with their methods, and with modern technical means of fighting crime."
