The Chief Information Office in Moscow NATO, Robert Pszczel hopes that Moscow and Washington continue their negotiations on missile defense in Europe.
"I remain optimistic because the missile defense system in Europe would benefit the United States and Russia. If the inauguration of Barack Obama gave a new impetus to these negotiations, I can only congratulate myself," he said Monday M . Pszczel in Moscow.
According to him, the creation of a ballistic missile defense capability is not an issue that could be resolved quickly.
Summit Russia-NATO Lisbon in November 2010, Moscow and Washington have agreed to cooperate in the field of European missile defense. However, the parties were never able to agree on the future architecture of the shield.
