MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russia does not see any prospects for working with the United States in the sphere of strategic arms reduction, Russian Ambassador to Washington Sergey Kislyak told Rossiya 24 TV channel in an interview broadcast on Wednesday.

"They propose to continue reducing strategic nuclear arms - and this is our main deterrent potential - while Americans are planning to deploy new systems which will partially replace them from the point of view of deterrent potential. This is not going to work," Kislyak said. "We have to ensure the security of our country and our people under any circumstances," he added.

The ambassador said that among US actions on compensating their deterrent potential are deployment of global missile defense system and creating new non-nuclear weapons. "In such conditions at this stage, we do not see prospects for further reduction of strategic arms until our American friends start working seriously with us on those challenges that we consider imminent for our security," Kislyak noted.
