Russia outlines response to U.S. missile shield

By Steve Gutterman

MOSCOW- Russia will arm itself with missiles capable of foiling a U.S. shield in Europe and may deploy additional weapons in its west and south to counteract the system the United States is building with NATO allies, President Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

Targeting the West in tough talk two weeks before a parliamentary election that could influence his political future, Medvedev outlined a series of steps in response to U.S. and NATO plans to deploy a European missile shield by 2020.

At the same time, Medvedev emphasized that Russia would continue talks aimed at turning decades of confrontation over missile defense into cooperation, a signal that the measures he described may be negotiating tactics.
