MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Moscow is working on a new version of the national security strategy to provide for counter-measures against any likely threats, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in reply to a question from TASS.
"It is true that such work is in progress," he said about the drafting of a new version of the document, adding that it was too early to disclose the contents.
"Let us wait for the publication of the document," he said. "It goes without saying that all threats to national security are being taken into account and studied and the appropriate countermeasures are being devised."
Speaking about the US new National Security Strategy, presented in Washington on Wednesday, the Kremlin spokesman said it is not conducive to efforts to normalise relations with Russia, but on the contrary, expresses a confrontational attitude.
"With regard to information on the United States, I can only express regret, because the concept of security - is a document designed for the medium and long term. And the appearance of such language in the document testifies to a confrontational attitude devoid of any objectivism with respect to our country," Peskov said, answering a TASS question.
He stressed that this confrontational attitude, according to the document, will be preserved "in the long term." According to the Kremlin spokesman, "this, of course, will unlikely contribute to the efforts to steer our bilateral relations towards normalisation after all, which is so necessary for the joint response to the present-day challenges, which cannot be coped with by countries separately - it’s the dangerous Islamic States spread and other manifestations of terrorism."
