MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. The joint exercises of NATO countries on holding joint "nuclear missions" run contrary to their commitments under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said at the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, on Friday.
"We see that the US and NATO countries infrastructure is really expanding, especially in our western direction, and we note that the practice of joint drills between the US and other countries of the North-Atlantic Alliance as part of holding the so-called nuclear missions remains," Ryabkov said.
"In our opinion, this contradicts the commitments undertaken by the countries that are part of the alliance on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons," Ryabkov said.
