SOFRINO, Moscow Region, May 4 (Itar-Tass) — Russia, the U.S. and NATO could jointly use Russia’s potential of air and space defense against third countries’ medium- and long-range missiles, if a missile defense agreement is reached, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told reporters on Friday.
“If we agree with the U.S. and NATO, this missile defense radar station (Don-2N outside Moscow) could be a part of that potential that could be jointly used to counter potential threats of medium- and long-range missiles,” he said, when foreign delegates to the international conference on missile defense visited the missile defense division in Sofrino near Moscow.
“Until now there is no talk that this facility will be jointly used. We only want to demonstrate in practice, in reality those elements of air and space defense that Russia has today and to prove that Russia is ready for real cooperation,” he said.
