MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) – U.S. is unwilling to issue any legal guarantees regarding the antiballistic missile system in Europe, as it feels apprehensive about the possibility of prohibitive measures on the part of Russia in the future, U.S. Ambassador in Moscow Michael McFaul said in an interview with the Echo of Moscow radio.
The logic behind this reluctance suggests that no one knows what threats may emerge in the future and what country they may surface in, and here there will be a document stipulating that certain things should not be done any longer.
“And imagine a threat appears and we have to react to it, but all of a sudden there is this very ban,” Mc Faul said.
“That’s our logic but we heed the arguments on the Russian side, too,” he indicated.
