MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. Russia is ready to take part in work on new arms control agreements on the principles of equality, a Russian Foreign Ministry official said on Monday.
Speaking at an international research centers conference dubbed "The Crisis of the World Order: Experts’ Views", associated with the Primakov Readings forum, Georgy Borisenkov, director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s North America department, noted that it is not ruled out that a conflict in the present-day world may trigger the use of nuclear weapons.
