Czech deal cancels out US-Russia missile talks
A U.S. deal with the Czech Republic on missile shield complicates European security and cancels out consultations with Moscow on the missile shield, media quoted a Russian foreign ministry source as saying.

"A step has been taken... which in our view has not added to security on the European continent. More than that, it has complicated problems of security," Interfax news agency quoted a senior foreign ministry source as saying.

The news agency also quoted a foreign ministry source as saying the U.S. deal with the Czech Republic on stationing elements of the shield "in effect cancelled out" an agreement between Moscow and Washington to consult on the system.
