United States increased the possibility of a nuclear war, claims Russian Foreign Minister
Moscow: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed the concern that the United States has hastened the process of use of nuclear weapons and this has increased the possibility of a nuclear war. Russian Foreign Minister expressed this concern at the security conference in Moscow. A few days ago, Russian President Putin had claimed that no country in the world is out of the Russian missile range. United States had also replied to this. In view of that the concern expressed by the Russian Foreign Minister sounds appropriate.
The Russian foreign Minister also blamed that the United States will not bother about disturbing the balance of power to establish its military superiority and the United States has already made the preparations in this direction. The United States is developing new updated missiles to replace their old missiles. Similarly, United states has increased the possibility of a nuclear war by hastening the process of nuclear deployment, claimed Foreign Minister Lavrov.
Russia has made efforts to rebuild the mutual confidence through talks in view of the instability created due to the United States and NATO activities. Lavrov expressed regret that there was no response for these efforts from the United States. At the same time, the western countries have to realise that their stubbornness will not be tolerable henceforth, slammed the Russian Foreign Minister.
