Washington rejects Moscow’s arms offer

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — A high-ranking U.S. administration official said Washington has little reason to consider acquiring advanced missile technology from Russia.

We are talking about the latest Russian weapons, including hypersonic missiles. According to a representative of the US administration, Washington has a major relative advantage over Russia in the safe development, testing and use of rocket technology.

Thus, the US commented on the statement of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin , which he did at the plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum on Thursday, September 5.

The Russian leader announced Moscow’s potential willingness to share its missile development with Washington. Such intentions are aimed at maintaining a strategic military balance between the two countries.

Putin also noted that he raised this issue at a recent personal meeting with US President Donald Trump. The Russian leader said that Washington has not yet responded to Russia’s proposals aimed at preventing an arms race in the world.
