MOSCOW, May 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russia needs not just the information on the U.S. military policy, the country needs the predictability of U.S. actions, Russian Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov said in his speech at the international conference on European security here on Thursday.
He noted that the U.S. decision to change the deadlines to fulfil a fourth stage of the deployment of the missile defence does not mean the full lifting of Russia’s concerns over this issue. Russia needs not just a clear information over the missile defence project, “we need the predictability in the U.S. foreign policy,” Antonov said.
The deputy defence minister noted that Russia lacks a clear idea over a future U.S. policy. It is probable that the United States will come back to the decision to fulfil a fourth stage of the deployment of the missile defence system. “Therefore, we need clear predictability in the U.S. military policy,” he explained.
Today new irritating factors, which pose a threat to national security of Russia, are emerging on the border with Russia. “Settling the problem allegedly with Iran, the NATO states are disputing with Russia. Why?” Anatoly Antonov. “It is not worth powder and shot,” he said with confidence.
