2009-09-21 17:04

"We treat everything concerning missile defense, negatively. The only form of work in this field can be co-operation," said Nikolai Makarov, the Chief of General Stuff. He added that Moscow made no decision on deployment of Iskander, theater ballistic missile system in Kaliningrad region - RosBalt.


At the same time, he mentioned the USA didn't renounce the missile defense but substitute the complexes with "marine component".

Previously Georgia times reported that in the course of new U.S. missile defense architecture Pentagon plans to deploy radars of early warning of launches in Caucasus instead of the Czech Republic.

According to James Cartwright, current Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the new architecture implies relocation of radar working in centimeter diapason, and that one is likely to be placed in Caucasus, though he didn't mention where.
