Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and FBI Director Robert Mueller have discussed the issues of preventing and fighting terrorism.

"The purpose of my visit is to meet with representatives of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry and the Ukrainian Security Service and discuss the issues that are of mutual interest to us," Mueller said at a meeting with Yanukovych in Kyiv on Wednesday, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

He said that the United States believes that combating terrorism is an important question.
He also thanked Ukraine for rapid assistance and the provision of important information after the Boston Marathon bombings.

Mueller also said that the FBI’s work is now focused on preventing, rather than investigating crimes.

Yanukovych, in turn, said that relations between Ukraine and the United States were based on the bilateral charter on strategic partnership.

He said that Ukrainian-U.S. relations were developing in many spheres of mutual interest.

"I’m confident there is potential for the expansion of such cooperation," Yanukovych said.

He also said that Ukraine pays a great deal of attention to preventing and fighting terrorism, and that a number of documents had recently been adopted to increase the effectiveness of work in this area.

Yanukovych noted that Ukraine now holds presidency of the OSCE. He also noted with satisfaction the constructive cooperation with Washington in implementing OSCE priorities.
