BRUSSELS, March 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Defense Minister has dispatched an invitation to NATO’s Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen to an international missile defense conference in Moscow, the chief of the Defense Ministry’s international military cooperation department, Sergei Koshelev, said on Wednesday.
The conference entitled Missile Defense Factor in Forming New Security Space will be held in Moscow on May 3-4.
“An invitation to the conference from the Russian Defense Ministry will be handed over to NATO’s Secretary-General Andres Fogh Rasmussen later today,” Koshelev said.
He pointed out that “the time for achieving a missile defense compromise has not been wasted yet.”
“Our task is to explain to the maximum extent our concerns with facts and figures on hand, and to make our partners take these concerns into account,” Koshelev said. “We shall present a discussion floor for missile defense debates with the emphasis on the military-technical aspect. We wish to analyze the existing missile threats in the world and to assess the likely tactical and technical characteristics of future missile systems that may be threatening Europe.”
