MOSCOW, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. The USA has assured Russia that it sought to cooperate in disarmament and non-proliferation, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry Department for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Vladislav Antonyuk said.
The Russian diplomat spoke at a session of the State Duma Committee for Security and Counter-Corruption on Wednesday.
Deputies discussed an intergovernmental protocol to the Multilateral Nuclear Environmental Program in the Russian Federation Framework Agreement. The protocol has been submitted for ratification.
The committee’s member, Nikolai Kovalev, asked what should be done if the United States gave up the agreement.
“Our steps are thought-out,” Antonyuk said.
The diplomat recognized that Russian-US relations faced serious problems due to the events in Ukraine. “In recent days the USA has made it clear that it seeks to continue fruitful cooperation on disarmament and the non-proliferation,” he said.
