Iran poses no threat to Russia, top diplomats and military officials said Thursday as Moscow pressed its argument for the United States to abandon plans for a missile defense system in Europe. Washington says putting missile defense components in the Czech Republic and Poland will help protect Europe against potential missile attacks from Iran. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak said Russia sees no threat from Iran and added that the proposed defense system was likely intended to target Russia.
