MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. Nuclear powers, including Russia and the United States, must boost cooperation and mutual assistance, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday.
"Generally speaking, a very balanced approach is needed to everything that is linked with weapons control," he said, adding that talks on a new convention banning possession of nuclear weapons will begin in New York on March 27.
"How do you think nuclear powers must behave? I think nuclear powers, including the United States and Russia, must strengthen their solidarity, cooperation, mutual assistance, if you like," he said.
"We have been insisting and will insist that nuclear weapons are a factor of maintaining stability, a factor guaranteeing international security and our security, protecting the world from most disastrous conflicts," he stressed.
