MI5 thwarting monthly terror attacks in UK, warns spy chief

Andrew Parker Director General of MI5 will launch a scathing verbal assault on Russia during a speech in Berlin when he addresses European security chiefs

During an address to a meeting of European intelligence chiefs in Berlin today, also warned that ISIS continues to aspire to commit "devastating" attacks in Europe after losing territory in Syria and Iraq.

Britain and the European Union must build a close security partnership after Brexit to counter "devastating" IS attacks, the head of MI5 said today.He also condemned Russian Federation for the "fog of lies, half truths and obfuscation" that pours out of Putin's propaganda machine over Salisbury poisoning.

President Vladimir Putin claims that British allegations are "nonsense" but that Moscow is willing to cooperate with London on the probe.

More than two months on from the attempted murder of Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in southern England, counter-terror police and the Security Service have not identified any suspects.

He'll also condemn what he calls the unprecedented level of Russia's disinformation following the attack, with the need "to shine a light through the fog of lies, half-truths and obfuscation that pours out of their propaganda machine".

"European intelligence cooperation today is simply unrecognizable to what it looked like five years ago", he will say, adding: "In today's uncertain world we need that shared strength more than ever".

The incident led to a sharp deterioration in relations between the west and Moscow, with more than 20 countries and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation joining the United Kingdom in expelling 150 Russian diplomats.

The MI5 chief stressed that the "sustained worldwide focus" was required to defeat the Daesh* terrorist group, which has claimed multiple attacks in Europe and elsewhere in the last few years, even though the group has suffered significant losses in the Middle East.

The security services have foiled 12 terror plots since the Westminster attack last March, Andrew Parker will reveal.

In a rare public speech, the director of Britain's domestic security service will say Monday that close cooperation with Europe is more vital than ever given the threat from the Islamic State extremist group and hostile states like Russian Federation.

Parker, speaking to an audience made up of fellow intelligence officers, will say European intelligence partnerships have never been more crucial in combating the threat posed by Russian Federation and by the "intense and unrelenting global terrorist threat".

Parker will thank European security agencies for their support in the investigation following the Manchester bombing that claimed 22 lives almost a year ago.

Mr Parker will spell out why an effective security partnership between the United Kingdom and Europe is more operationally vital than ever before.

He will be speaking to the Counter Terrorism Group, which comprises intelligence chiefs from 30 European domestic security services.
