MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will have to reconsider its relations with NATO concerning other strategic issues, including Afghanistan, if the alliance issues no response to the statement on missile defence, Russia’s NATO envoy, Dmitry Rogozin, said on Monday.
“If our partners do not react to the statements that are predictable and proportionate to risks and threats, we have to touch upon relations with our partners as concerns other directions,” he said.
Speaking about possible leverages he emphasized Afghanistan. The expert underlined that he supported a systematic approach to resolving this problem.
President Dmitry Medvedev said last Wednesday that Russia will target the U.S. missile defence system in Europe with its missiles if Moscow cannot reach an agreement with the U.S. and NATO on how the system will be operated.
