MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia may participate in a NATO summit in Chicago, but without any progress in the missile defence issue the chances are lowering, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday.
“I believe that if the missile defence situation remains the same as now the chances for our participation are getting much lower. But the agenda of the summit without the missile defence issue is impossible,” the Russian high-ranking diplomat said.
“There are some issues, which can be presented for a summit. For instance, it is Afghanistan. But I believe that this is hardly probable in political terms,” Ryabkov underlined.
