Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday assertions that an Iranian missile program represented a threat to the United States' NATO partners in Europe were unfounded, RIA news agency reported.

A US missile defense shield in Romania is on the verge of being activated almost a decade after Washington proposed protecting NATO from Iranian rockets. Russia firmly opposes the missile shield.
