MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow was surprised to see reports on the Internet alleging that Russia was planning "to create a military base in Argentina", spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday.
Lukashevich has dismissed the allegations as "a provocative canard," "which would have not been worth mentioning if it had not been for fantasies, as regards Russia's plans, in what direction it should develop its relations with Argentina," the diplomat said.
"Anyway, circulating such fantasies was no surprise, given an avalanche of misinformation leaked by Western mass media, as if they were orchestrated by someone, on quite a different subject," the diplomat said.
"I would like to emphasize that Russia upholds its adherence to a constructive development of Russia's relations with Argentina in different fields," Lukashevich said.
"The partnership between the two countries rests on a reliable and friendly basis, the nature of our partnership makes it impossible to target it (partnership) against anyone," Lukashevich stressed.
