Deputy head of the Pentagon Robert Wark stated that Washington is extremely concerned about threats similar to those which, in his view, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an address to a missile defense system. This week, the head of state said that the Russian authorities will be forced to think about stopping threats to national security. He said this after the opening of the ground base American missile defense in Romania.
“These words are part of the threat model, and we would like to ask the Russian authorities to think about what they say because we want to work with them if we can. But such threats are very problematic and extremely bother us,” said Wark.
