MOSCOW, March 29 (Itar-Tass) — The U.S. embassy in Russia has left a message in the Twitter network, saying Washington is interested in cooperation with Moscow on ABM problems.
A source from the U.S. embassy has confirmed that the U.S. wants to cooperate with Russia on ABM problems. We believe that the two countries are mutually interested in it, the embassy said.
Over the past week the administration of the White House has more than once confirmed that it was planning to continue the ABM dialogue with Russia. Despite differences on this very sensitive subject the Russian and U.S. presidents, Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama, underlined on the sidelines of the nuclear summit in Seoul that both sides were interested in continuing the discussion of the ABM problem.
As the presidential race in the U.S. is nearing its peak Obama’s rivals from the Republican Party accused the U.S. president of excessive flexibility and concessions to Moscow. Obama's main rival in the presidential race Mitt Romney has gone as far as calling Russia the main geopolitical rival of the United States.
The parameters of the further dialogue on the ABM system will obviously be discussed in Moscow this week by U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance Rose Gottemoeller with her Russian counterparts; formally, her visit is devoted to problems of control over conventional weapons.
