    WASHINGTON, JANUARY 13 (RIA NOVOSTI CORRESPONDENT ARKADY ORLOV) - The USA continues raising the question of Russian military equipment deliveries to Iraq, and Russia cooperates with the US administration in checking the facts, deputy spokesman of the US State Department Adam Ereli said at a briefing in Washington.

    I would characterize this as cooperation, Ereli pointed out. According to him, the USA continues to conduct negotiations with Russia, trying to determine whether the handing over of military technologies violated the US laws and UN sanctions.

    Ereli also stressed that last March the USA declared that it received information on the sale to Iraq of a sensitive Russian military equipment before the war, which was a threat to the US troops.

    Meanwhile Russian vice-premier Alyoshin declared on January 12 in Moscow that the Russian government did not know about the deliveries of the Russian military equipment to Iraq.
