Intelligence agencies of Georgia and France will deepen their co-operation in the sphere of information exchange. An agreement to this effect has been reached during the one-day visit of Pierre Brochard, head of the French intelligence service, to Tbilisi.
Archil Chkhartishvili, the official spokesman for Georgia's Department of Intelligence, told RIA Novosti that Pierre Brochard has paid a return visit to Georgia.
Chkhartishvili ruled out any link between Brochard's visit to Tbilisi and a recent statement made by French Interior Minister Nicholas Sarkozy at the meeting of G8 Interior and Justice Ministers in Paris. Nicholas Sarkozy said then that he did not exclude a possibility that Al-Qaeda terrorists might have moved base from Afghanistan to Georgia.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
