MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. Russia should continue honoring its international commitments for chemical weapons destruction, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.
"We should also continue fulfilling the international obligations our country assumed for destroying chemical weapons," Medvedev said at a government meeting on 2016-2018 budget expenses on the defense industry.
"All of us understand this but the budget is complex," the premier said.
The Russian government should analyze expenditures on the defense and industrial complex to identify the areas that need additional appropriations and the areas that can be optimized, the premier said.
"But let me stress this should not be done to the detriment of those tasks, which the President sets and which must be fulfilled by the government in this area," Medvedev said.
