MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow insists on making further nuclear arms reduction multilateral, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the conference Nuclear Weapons and International Security in the 21st Century.
“We proceed from the understanding that further steps in the field of nuclear arms reduction and limitation must be multilateral,” Ryabkov said. “This will make it possible to take them in a way that will strengthen international stability, maintain peace and equal and indivisible security and also guarantee the verifiability and irreversibility of the measures being taken.”
