MOSCOW, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Cooperation in missile defence is still possible with Russia, U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul told Russian daily Kommersant.
Asked why the White House did not revise missile defence deployment plans in Europe as a perceived Iranian threat waned, McFaul said the U.S. was now estimating whether a threat existed. As there were no fixed agreements with Iran, it was early to say the threat was no more.
McFaul expressed hope the two countries would make concerted efforts to reach long-term agreements. But until this happened, it was early to talk about a new reality, he said.
The ambassador said the U.S. still considered missile defense a sphere for cooperation with Russia as the two countries’ tasks were similar.
The U.S. had neither intent nor opportunity to create a missile defence system against Russia, which would be naпve and physically impossible. So far, the U.S. had achieved no significant results in talks with Russia but was planning to continue working for progress, the envoy said.
