FBI Director Robert Mueller met with Israel Police Insp.-Gen. David Cohen at police headquarters in Jerusalem on Thursday, where two men discussed cooperation against organized international crime and joint efforts on counter-terrorism.

The meeting was also attended by Cmdr. Yoav Seglovitch, head of the Investigations and Intelligence Branch and Dep.-Cmdr. Ronni Ritman, head of the Intelligence Department.

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.
