MOSCOW, September 5. /TASS/. Possibilities to establish a new conventional arms control regime in Europe do exist but Russia is not going to initiate any dialogue on that matter, neither does it plan to put forth any demands concerning that, the Russian foreign ministry said on Monday, commenting on an article by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on this subject.
"We paid attention to the article by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier ‘Reviving Arms Control in Europe,’" the ministry said.
"We are studying it thoroughly."
"We believe that possibilities for the establishment of a new conventional arms control regime in Europe do exist," the ministry said. "However, contrary to what is said in the article, the Russian side is not going to either initiate any dialogue on that matter or to put forth any demands concerning that.".
