Putin: Romney Naming Russia Top 'Foe' Helps

Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:06 PM


MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin says a comment made by U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney has made Russia feel justified in opposing America's missile defense plans in Europe.

The Republican challenger to President Barack Obama has branded Russia the "No. 1 geopolitical foe" of the United States.

Putin said Tuesday that statement shows Russia is right to criticize the U.S.-led NATO plan to place land- and sea-based radars and interceptors in several European locations. Washington says the shield is intended against a possible missile attack from Iran, but Moscow sees it as a threat to its security.

Putin said in remarks carried by Russian news wires that Romney's statement has "strengthened Russia's positions in talks on this important and sensitive subject," but added that he would work with Romney if he's elected.
