Moscow and Washington are laying groundwork for a meeting on anti-terror fight at the level of deputies of top Russian and US diplomats, but the date is still being discussed, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said on Wednesday, TASS reports.

"The effort is underway, there is the proposal and we have accepted it. Now it is being discussed. The date and the venue are also being considered," the high-ranking diplomat said. "Just now we are solving the issue of the date," he added.

Speaking on the level of the upcoming dialogue, Syromolotov said he and US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan would attend the meeting.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton said after the Moscow talks with Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev last month that the Russian-US anti-terror meeting would be held in December.

At the July summit in Helsinki, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered his US counterpart Donald Trump to resume the work of a bilateral group on countering terrorism, which operated between 2001 and 2014.
