Cohen said during the meeting that the two law enforcement agencies had enjoyed "fruitful cooperation" in recent years, and briefed Mueller over "the complexities of missions faced by the Israel Police which are unique to it, counter-terrorism, maintaining public order, and crime fighting."

Mueller described Israel as a "close ally," adding that operational cooperation would continue.

He said the struggle against organized crime and computer crime was borderless, as was the joint struggle against terrorism.
