Russia fumes at US missile defense plan
Russia's Foreign Ministry spokesman says Moscow is seriously concerned about US plans to deploy missile interceptors in Romania. Andrei Nesterenko says that Russia has been annoyed to learn about the move from the media.

 

He also signaled Moscow's skepticism about Washington's explanation that the interceptors were needed to protect US troops and NATO allies against the Iranian missile threat, saying Friday that Russia has "serious questions" regarding its true purpose. (AP)
