The Pentagon: a new strategy does not mean entry into the United States in the arms race


Deputy Minister of defense of the United States for political Affairs John Rood spoke to reporters during a special briefing held after the presentation at the offices of the new Strategy of the further development of the American missile defense system. Deputy head of the Pentagon has tried to convince the media that the document cannot be regarded as the country’s entry into another arms race, as set out in this strategy is purely defensive in nature.

“I would like to draw your attention to the word “defense” in the name of the strategy. I think that creating systems that can shoot down missiles launched in our direction, it is wrong to call a provocative action,” – said the Deputy Minister.
