The fact that NATO has no legal obligations in the sphere of missile defense does not mean that agreements reached in this sphere will not be fulfilled, NATO Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy Dirk Brengelmann said.
The message sent by Russian President Vladimir Putin to his U.S. counterpart Barrack Obama is not a direct response to Obama's letter, but outlines Russia's goals and reference points on bilateral and international issues, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday.
"I would not say that this message is a response to Obama's message in the direct sense of this word because constant dialogue is going on and we have questions that the Russian president stated in his letter to Obama in a detailed and clear way. They outline our goals and reference points, not react to some U.S. proposals," Ryabkov said on Thursday.
