“Our American partners have been proposing insistently already for several years, and [US Secretary of State] John Kerry confirmed this at the meeting in Paris, to resume talks on disarmament and to agree on further steps to cut strategic offensive weapons. I explained to my partner that we are ready to consider issues of security, disarmament and strategic stability only in interrelations,” he said.With all circumstances taken into account these talks can be only sweeping, including missile defense issue, and certainly problems are emerging as a result of implementing the US prompt global strike program that implies production of strategic hypersonic weapons with non-nuclear warheads, but much more effective than nuclear weapons to attain strategic tasks,” the minister added, noting “The problem of US plans to bring weapons in the outer space is also among them. The United States is now the only country which opposes an initiative put forward by Russia and China to draft a treaty banning bringing of weapons into space. The whole scope of other issues related with misbalance in conventional weapons is among these problems.
“All this taken together was agreed upon for profound and professional debate within a working group of the Russia-US Presidential Commission, but Americans have frozen this work,” he said.
“Now we are offered as if nothing had happened to start talks on further reduction of nuclear weapons. This is also dishonest. We seemed to be taken for some naive ingйnues,” Lavrov added.
