ATHENS, December 13, 4:01 /ITAR-TASS/. The agreements reached with Iran create an absolutely different geopolitical situation and should influence US European and global missile defense plans, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov told Russian reporters here on Thursday.
“You know our stance: we are not ready for a conversation just for the sake of conversation, but we are ready to speak if some indeed realistic argumentation is produced, some real matters,” he said. “And naturally we proceed from the fact that the agreements reached with Iran create an absolutely different geopolitical situation, as we had always heard from our partners that their concern about the nuclear program of Iran was prompting them to make steps towards creating a European missile defence system,” Meshkov said.
“Now, as we understand, this concern wanes. It would be logical if it had an impact on NATO’s European missile defence plans, as well as on US global missile defence. Let us see how our partners will act,” he added.
