Russia willing to hold talks with the US on strategic stability

Astana, Jul 4 (Prensa Latina) Russia is willing to keep talking with Washington about strategic stability, Russian President Vladimir Putin said today during the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Let’s wait for the next government to be formed and find out what its plans and preferences are, although from time to time the US sends signals that they want to resume this talks with us, then suddenly they disappear, the president stressed.

Putin also recalled that the United States remains a big power with well-known economic, military and security capabilities and is one of the permanent members of the UN Security Council.

The Russian head of state also stressed that Moscow has the right to initiate the development and production of short- and medium-range missiles in response to US recent actions.

In addition, the Russian leader confirmed that the Slavic country is ready to ‘act symmetrically’ in case of deployment of US missiles of this type in any region of the world.

During his appearance before the press covering the SCO summit, Putin recalled that Moscow has always advocated negotiations.

It has never rejected them.
