Russia is not indifferent to appearance of WMD near its borders

Russia is not indifferent to the appearance of mass destruction weapons near its borders, deputy secretary of the Russian security council Oleg Chernov told journalists at a briefing held shortly before the council's session scheduled for Wednesday. It will spotlight the issue of ensuring national security in the sphere of the non-proliferation of mass destruction weapons and their delivery means.

"A number of countries," Oleg Chernov said, "continue using nuclear weapons as a deterrence means. After the Iraqi events several states, in particular North Korea, declared practical measures they will take in this respect." "In this connection, Russia is not indifferent to the appearance of the mass destruction weapons along the perimeter of its borders," he stressed.

Chernov focused attention on the need to find joint approaches with the CIS countries to the solution of this problem, on condition of the transparency of their borders. "The export control model laws should be worked out in order to unify and harmonize our normative basis," Chernov emphasized.

When trade barriers are removed within the CIS attention should be paid to cutting short the transit of dangerous materials, he pointed out.
