Moscow, May 17 (Sputnik/UNI) The reduction of violence in Afghanistan meets interests of both Russia and the United States, since both Washington and Moscow are concerned over terrorist threat coming from the Middle Eastern country, US State Secretary Mike Pompeo has said.

"Today in Afghanistan we're working to try to achieve reconciliation there. Russia has been very close to Afghanistan and has a terrorist threat that can emulate from that region in the same way that the United States has a terror threat that may - there's an overlap. We could achieve a reduction in violence there. We could do good for each of our two countries," Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News Radio, released on Thursday.
