MOSCOW, September 29./TASS/. Russia will have to take into account US approaches on nuclear deterrence and take counter measures to ensure its national security, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday commenting on statements of US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter on issues of nuclear deterrence.
"It is not only their over-the-top Russophobia, which has unfortunately become of late a norm for public speeches by representatives of the outgoing administration," the ministry said.
It expressed "serious concern over the mentioned readiness to use their nuclear potentials in case of an armed conflict with participation of Russia with an aim to prevent our country from a possibility to use nuclear weapons to rebuff aggression," the ministry said.
"Of course we will have to keep in mind US approaches and take necessary counter measures to ensure our national security," the ministry said.
The US must realize possible consequences of its statements on nuclear deterrence for international security and stability, she added.
