MOSCOW, April 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The recent computer-simulated Russia-NATO drills on missile defence were a success, head of the Russian defence ministry’s international cooperation department Sergei Koshelev said on Friday.
“During the Lisbon Russian-NATO Council summit in November 2010, the presidents of Russia and NATO countries agreed to continue the practice of missile defence exercises,” he said. “Such exercises were held in Germany. More than 60 specialists from member countries took part. We think the drills were successful and useful.”
“We will give a joint assessment of the drills” soon, he noted. “We hope that during a Moscow conference on missile defence we will summarize the results and exchange our impressions of the exercises.”
