MUNICH, February 11 (RIA Novosti) - Russia is prepared to cooperate with the West in creating a European anti-missile defense system, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said Sunday.

Ivanov spoke at the international security conference in Munich.

The Russian defense minister said Russia has no military and political enemies today.

"We have no countries, the relations with which have been significantly impaired," Ivanov said.

At the same time, Ivanov said the global system of stability is disintegrating.

"There are more conflicts in today's world than during the Cold War period," the Russian defense minister said.

Ivanov also said the so-called "threshold" countries, including North Korea and Iran, will be unable to create intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in the near future.

Speaking about the political situation in Russia, Ivanov said there will be no successors to the Russian presidency.

"I want to announce that we have no successors or crown princes. The Russian people will decide at the March 2, 2008 elections who will be the president of Russia," he said, adding that he was not thinking about presidency.
