Chairman of the NATO Military Committee Admiral Robert Bauer commented on reports that Russia could deploy missiles in Cuba and in Venezuela as a response to the US and the alliance's refusal to agree with Moscow on security guarantees.
Bauer noted that Cuba and Venezuela are not NATO territory. At the same time, he stressed that a number of NATO allied states would be “concerned by such a development of events.”
Earlier, Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov, in an interview with RTVI, in response to a question about Russian missiles in Cuba and Venezuela, answered : “I don't want to confirm anything, (…) or rule it out.”
