Russia reiterates its position on European ABM

Russia has reiterated its position on the European anti-ballistic missile system.

Speaking at the European security conference in Berlin Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Anton Denisov said that Moscow was ready to cooperate with European states in ABM but only if they provide guarantees that this system is not targeted against Russia. He added that these guarantees must be based on sound military technical criteria.

“We are convinced that if there is political willit is quite realistic to work out a clever configuration of the ABM system which would protect Europe from missile threats and the same time would not have anti-Russian potential”, the diplomat said.
