The Russian president’s proposal to Washington on the ABM shows that Russia “is ready for real strategic partnership with the United States”
The Russian president’s proposal to Washington on the ABM shows that Russia “is ready for real strategic partnership with the United States” and this is “a political victory of our country”, holds Mikhail Margelov, the chairman of the Federation Council Committee for International Affairs. “While there is reserved assessment of our relations with the US, Vladimir Putin proposed to the Americans to create an ABM system jointly with Russia, and this makes our meeting at Kennebunkport an event of extreme importance,” he told Itar-Tass. The Russian president’s proposal shows, “We are ready for strategic partnership with the United States”, Margelov said, stressing that the Americans must now decide “whether they should work with us selectively or cooperate broadly, in every area of world politics.” In other words, “a political victory has been won, "the moment of truth set in, since the US side should give a clear answer to Russia’s unambiguous proposal, and the answer should not be wishy-washy,” Margelov holds. If Putin’s proposal is accepted, “debates about the nature of Russian-American relations must end,” Margelov holds. This is why, he said, join construction of a security system presupposes “precisely strategic partnership of which there was much talk in both countries at one time.” On the eve of the meeting with US President George Bush, Vladimir Putin suggested setting up in Moscow a centre to exchange information for work on ABM, and to use a station for early warning of missile launchings being built in south Russia. “An analytical centre can be set up in one of European countries, for instance, in Brussels,” he added. “This would be a closed system working in a real time regime,” Putin noted.
