NOVO-OGAREVO, October 30. /TASS/. Russia will dispose of chemical weapons by 2020, and the United States by 2028, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev said Friday after a Security Council meeting.
"We are putting into practice a program to get rid of chemical weapons. Russia will dispose of these weapons by 2020. It was expected that the US will also destroy these weapons by that time, but according to today’s plans, it will carry out the disposal by 2028," Patrushev told journalists.
He said threats to Russia’s security are both of internal and international nature. Besides the chemical weapons problem, he named the threats connected with creation of biological weapons to which tens of billions of dollars is allocated.
Patrushev said the Security Council registers an increase in the number of relevant laboratories subordinate to the United States, including in the territory of former Soviet republics.
