URGENT ¥¥¥ Russia sees 'no concession' in US missile defence move

Russia said on Monday it saw "no concession" in the US decision to abandon the final phase of its missile defence shield for Europe in favour of deployments against a possible attack from North Korea.

"This is not a concession to Russia and we do not see it as such," Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the Kommersant business daily. "Our objections remain."
