    Moscow is ready to participate in the preparation of new agreements on nuclear weapons on condition that Russia's national interests will be respected, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The risk of a conflict leading to a possible use of nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out, head of the ministry's Department of North America, Georgiy Borisenko, said.

    "Unfortunately, the possibility of a conflict leading to the escalation to the level of the use of nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out."

    "This means that the preparation of new agreements on arms control should be on current agenda," Borisenko said.

      They should SHUT UP and go work. Russia needs a LOT. Those weapons are safe. And well guarded. Is like a group of IDIOTS that can do nothing else 24/7.
      Russia need more nukes not less. And why Russia is the ONLY nation on earth that MUST end nukes? While everyone else can have them. Even E.U have them.
      And they claim they don't. Go place some in IRAN, Egypt, CUBA, Syria, CHINA< all countries.
      Russia hold the keys.
      BE BOLD and win. BE idiots, and re live 1990's.
