WASHINGTON — Spain and the United States plan to create a specialised police group to fight money laundering from drug trafficking, Spanish officials said on Friday.

The agreement was reached after a meeting between Spain's secretary of state for security, Antonio Camacho, and the U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and top officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration in Washington.

Camacho and Gonzales both agreed to continue the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking.

The new police group will work on the analysis and development of strategies "that permit the obtaining of operational results" against money laundering, officials said.

Camacho and Gonzales also agreed to look for ways the FBI and Spanish police can work to exchange of information relating to international terrorism including its financing.
