MOSCOW, July 22. /TASS/. Promulgation of the US missile defense plans in spite of the deal sealed with Iran on its nuclear programme confirms Russia’s worst fears, Russia’s Permanent representative to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said, aired by the Russian Rossiya 24 television on Wednesday.
"There remains only a name in the EuroABM project (European air defense)," Chizhov said adding that "It is a purely American project."
"Now there is a reasonable question, well, if Iran does not pose a threat any more, even if it is not a partner yet but not a foe either, then why is all this being built and against whom?" Chizhov asked rhetorically. "US reaction to this is quite eloquent and confirms our worst fears."
The US has announced plans to reject the deployment of the fourth stage of the missile defense system in Europe and to refocus towards protection against potential North Korea missile attacks. Infographics by TASS
