Iran Is Not a Missile Threat, Russia Says

In a television interview, the Kremlin's ambassador to NATO described the claim as a provocative myth and stated that Moscow would never identify Iran as a missile threat.

Rogozin also questioned the motives behind the United States' proposal to establish an anti-missile shield in Eastern Europe.

The United States and Russia have been at loggerheads over the US plan to establish an anti-ballistic missile system to protect Europe.

Moscow has called for shared control of any anti-missile shield, saying the aim of the Eastern European system is to encircle Russia, but Washington refuses to share the responsibility for protecting NATO member states with any third party.

NATO favors two separate but coordinated missile defense systems that would be comprised of NATO and Russian systems.

However, Moscow insists on a European system together with the alliance, with joint centers for detecting threats and a joint decision-making procedure.

The Kremlin has warned that if NATO ploughs ahead with its plans and no agreement is reached with Moscow, it will develop its own missile shield.
