Moscow, Apr 6 (Prensa Latina) Russian President Vladimir Putin affirmed Sunday in Sochi there are serious discrepancies between the Russian Federation and the US in the political-military order.

Referring to the content of the Declaration on the Strategic Framework for Bilateral Relations after a meeting with his US counterpart, George W. Bush, Putin insisted on topics threatening national security.

The anti-missile shield the US intends to set up in Europe has been, and still is, one of the most complex issues in the Russian-US agenda, Putin admitted.

He emphasized the document contains the Russian rejection of the US decision to position ten interceptor rockets in Poland, and an ultramodern radar in the Czech Republic.

Moscow-Washington disagreements in this matter deal with the content of the problem, not the formulas or diplomatic construction of phrases, the president highlighted in statements broadcast by the First TV Channel.

The Russian leader reiterated the initiative to use the current radar in Azerbaijan and the one being built in Russia.

That way, he pointed out, it could be controlled the alleged launching of missiles from Iran with which the Pentagon justifies the presence of its arsenals in East Europe.
