    MOSCOW, February 10 (RIA Novosti). Russia and NATO will hold a joint ABM exercise, first deputy chief of the Russian General Staff Yuri Baluyevsky told journalists today. The exercise will be held in a NATO country this year and in Russia in 2005.

    However, joint exercises need a good legal foundation, said the general. "Particularly much is to be done within the framework of Russia-NATO interaction to ensure the compatibility of air and ballistic missile defence systems," said Baluyevsky. In his words, Russia stands for joint efforts in the creation of theatre missile defence systems and aircraft. "There should be a common interest without infringement on national interests."
