MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) – To all appearances, the United States is ready to continue a dialogue on missile defense with Russia, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.
“We have received from the American side in Geneva certain technicalities concerning that, and our specialists will study them,” Ryabkov said.
He confirmed the words of Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov that Russian military are interested in continuing a dialogue on missile defense. The proposals “put certain novelty into this situation, but I am not ready now to assess whether the decisions made by the US administration are loss or gain,” he added.
“But we look at all that solely proceeding from the interests of Russia’s security,” the diplomat stressed. There is no clear answer as to what consequences it could have for our security,” he added.
“The American side is also ready to continue this dialogue,” he stressed, adding that US representatives had relayed to Russia in Geneva on Wednesday documents on their updated missile defense plan, four days after a briefing of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in Pentagon.
