"This [use of force] will never take place," Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with the Vesti television channel in reply to a request to comment on his statement made at a February 22 Moscow-Brussels video conference and wrongfully interpreted by some media.
Some media claimed, referring to Rogozin's statement on Kosovo, that he admitted of the use of force to restore international law. These reports prompted an angry reaction from Washington.
According to Rogozin, he would advise U.S. representatives to use reliable rather than dubious information sources.
Rogozin said Russia will defend its position on Kosovo in the UN Security Council as its permanent member.
