New US missile plan raises 'questions': Russia

CHISINAU, Oct 9, 2009 (AFP) - The new missile defence plan presented by US President Barack Obama's administration raises "more questions than answers," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

"The statements that are constantly being voiced raise more questions than answers," Lavrov told reporters during a visit to the Moldovan capital.

"We would like to receive full clarification," he added, referring to the plan presented by the Obama administration last month to replace an older plan backed by George W. Bush that would have placed missile defence facilities in eastern Europe.
