Naryshkin urged not to bring the international situation to the new “Cuban missile crisis”
Moscow. April 4. INTERFAX.RU. The head of the SVR Sergei Naryshkin said about the need to prevent the occurrence in the world of the new “Cuban missile crisis”.
“It is important to stop irresponsible gambling to raise rates and abandon power projection in international relations, not to bring the case to a new Cuban missile crisis”, — he said, speaking at an International security conference in Moscow.
According to Naryshkin, “the international community needs to “return to a healthy dialogue, not based on the egoistic ambitions of individual players, and the true values shared by the participants of international norms”.
The actions of the US against Russia allow us to speak about a return to the days of the “cold war,” Naryshkin said.
The fight against so-called non-existent “Russian threat” has become a real “obsession” of Washington politics. It has reached such proportions and gained so ridiculous that it is time to talk about the return of the dark days of the cold war, Sergey Narasingha SVR
The head of the SVR said that the objective reasons for the deterioration of relations does not exist. “The cold war is long over, the ideological confrontation between East and West in the context of globalization has come to naught,” — said Naryshkin. According to him, before the world community is facing entirely new challenges such as international terrorism, sustainable development and ecological security in the world. “The answer can be given only by joint efforts, and to do so without the participation of Russia, as well as China, India, Brazil and other poles of a polycentric world, is simply unthinkable,” — said Naryshkin.
Earlier during the conference, Russian defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the U.S. missile defence system (NMD) is a destabilizing factor and stimulates arms race.
Today no one doubts that the American missile defense system is a serious destabilizing factor, the incentive for an arms race, a gross violation of international obligations, including the contract on liquidation of rockets of average and small range.Sergei Kogumikust of defense
According to the Minister, “is also of concern non-stop reinforcement of American forces in Eastern Europe”.
“There is a paradoxical situation: NATO seeks to build and modernize the infrastructure at the Russian borders, with public opinion shaped the myth of a growing Europe risk. That is, themselves intimidate a non-existent Russian threat,” — said the head of the defense Ministry.
