Moscow welcomed the U.S. achievements in fighting against international terrorism and vowed to continue cooperation with other countries in this field, the Kremlin said on Monday.

On Sunday night, U.S. President Barack Obama announced the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden at the hand of U.S. forces outside the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.

The Kremlin said in a statement that Russia has been plagued by terrorism attacks for years and that the country "knows not by hearsay what al-Qaida is."

"Only joint efforts against global terrorism can yield results," the Kremlin said, stressing that "Russia is ready to boost such cooperation."

"Retaliation against all terrorists will inevitably follow," the Kremlin added.

Also on Monday, Konstantin Kosachyov, head of the State Duma's International Affairs Committee, hailed the elimination of bin Laden, saying "this is a leap forward of the international community in combating global terrorism."
