NATO, Russia clash over missile deployment in Turkey

Published: 11.22.12, 22:15 / Israel News

NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen rejected Russian criticism on Thursday of the alliance's possible deployment of Patriot missiles near Turkey's border with Syria, by saying Russia's criticism was "not justified".


Russia said earlier it opposed the deployment of the surface-to-air missiles, which Ankara has asked NATO for because it fears spillover from the civil war in its neighbour. "This would not foster stability in the region," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said. (Reuters)
