MOSCOW DENIES U.S.-RUSSIAN DIFFERENCES ON NUCLEAR ISSUES.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 17
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Grigory Karasin yesterday denied a Western press report on delays in U.S.-Russian nuclear cooperation. The report alleged Russia had balked at implementing nuclear security and weapons inspection agreements reached in May 1995 and claimed Moscow’s delaying tactics were causing concern in Washington. (See Monitor, January 22) Karasin suggested that Russia and the United States were working together to solve very complex problems and that Moscow believed the entire range of relevant bilateral agreements would ultimately be implemented.
