MOSCOW, July 25 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov said non-nuclear precision weapon as nuclear arms should be taken under control.
Speaking at a session of the Russia-NATO Council, Antonov said: “New types of arms led to eliminating the distinction between the efficiency of nuclear and non-nuclear arms. Non-nuclear precision arms should be also taken under control.”
Conventional arms limitations have their significance. “The 2010 New START Treaty implies the absence of arms limitations and determines what delivery means are indispensable,” the Russian deputy minister said.
“Our experts should decide on contribution to military actions by attack unmanned drones, which turned out to be out of the efficiency of old agreements. What should be done with missile defence systems and space arms?” he said.
In addition, it is necessary to take into account the location of armaments, Antonov said, adding that previously this issue was being solved by the CFE Treaty. “Today the factor for creating compact special task units, which are capable of acting at a distance, is more than deployment sites and the number of tanks adjacent to any military district,” the deputy minister said.
