Russian Missile Defense Reaction

Eric Engleman reports from Moscow on today's reaction from Russia to President Bush's speech yesterday outlining proposals for a missile defense system. The Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov repeated Moscow's view that the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty is a cornerstone of global arms control, and not a relic of the Cold War, as President Bush sees it. At the same time, Ivanov welcomed the president's desire to consult with other governments on the matter.
