US reassures Russia on …cold war

The US goverment has offered Russia assurances over parts of a missile shield it wants to deploy in Europe, the Russian foreign minister has said. In an interview, Sergei Lavrov said the US had agreed to allow Moscow to monitor the missile protection system.

Why do I get the feeling that we are all the way back to the cold war? When I was young I remember doing special exersises at school for the day missiles would fallen upon us and the solutions was …cover under your desk!!!

However these comments came after high level bilateral discussions in Moscow.Russia has opposed US plans to establish missile defence installations in two central European countries.These currently include some interceptor missiles in Poland and an associated radar facility in the Czech Republic.The US says these are needed to counter a potential threat from Iran, though Moscow fears they could be used against Russia.
