SEOUL - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday a comment by US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, branding Russia the "number one geopolitical foe," smacked of Hollywood.

Romney was speaking on CNN in response to a conversation in Seoul on missile defense between Medvedev and US President Barack Obama.

"Regarding ideological clichés, every time this or that side uses phrases like 'enemy number one', this always alarms me, this smells of Hollywood and certain times (of the past)," Medvedev said at the end of a nuclear security summit in the South Korean capital.

"I would recommend all US presidential candidates ... to do two things. First, when phrasing their position one needs to use one's head, one's good reason, which would not do harm to a presidential candidate. "Also, (one needs to) look at his watch: we are in 2012 and not the mid-1970s."
