Medvedev says U.S. can move on missile shield | World | Reuters

LONDON (Reuters) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday that the United States was ready to discuss different ideas on the deployment of a U.S. missile defence system in Europe, which Moscow strongly opposes.

"As for the missile defence issue, this is one of the most complicated issues," Medvedev told a news briefing in London, a day after holding his first meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama.

"We touched upon this issue and we agreed that our contacts and discussions on this issue would be continued," he said.

"I got an impression that at least on this issue our (U.S.) partners do not hold a primitive position but are rather ready to discuss various ideas. And this is already crucial."
