WASHINGTON, March 29 /TASS/. U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance Frank Rose on Sunday travels to Romania where the U.S. is planning to deploy its ground-based IGIS missile systems by the end of 2015.
Frank Rose will meet Romania’s defense and foreign ministers on March 30 to discuss cooperation in air defense, arms control and NATO-related issues. After the trip to Bucharest, Frank Rose will visit Israel and Turkey.
In his speech at the International Munich Conference in February, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the U.S. plans on European air defense (EuroABM project) contradicted the 1987 Russian-U.S. Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).
Lavrov noted that the deployment of launchers for interceptor missiles in Romania and Poland will be direct violation of the INF Treaty because those systems could be used for launching medium-range cruise missiles.
