MOSCOW, December 1 (Itar-Tass) — Russia remains open for further talks with the U.S. in missile defence in Europe, President Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with his supporters on Thursday.
“It would be undesirable for Russia to deploy its strike forces on the borders due to the U.S. missile defence plans. We close nothing and we suspend nothing,” Medvedev said.
“We say if our partners are unable to come to an agreement within the nearest 8-10 years, we’ve have to take a series of forcible steps,” the president warned.
The first step was made – “we put in the radar in Kaliningrad. Our next steps are also well-known”, he said.
“I wouldn’t like one of the leaders of the Russian Federation to take a decision on the deployment of strike forces on the different borders of our country – both in Kaliningrad and in the south,” Medvedev stressed.
At the same time, he noted, “If all develops in the same way, Russia will have to respond. There are all material and military resources for this.”
