Russia's armed forces chief, General Yury Baluyevsky, says Iran will not pose a threat to the United States at least in the near future.
In an interview with Russia Today on Tuesday, the Russian Army Chief slammed the White House's plans for stationing the components of a missile defense shield system in Europe under the pretext of the threat posed by Iran.
The US claims it seeks to launch the missile shield to defend against 'possible missile attacks' by Iran.
Washington's plan entails the construction of a missile interceptor base in Poland and a radar site in the Czech Republic.
General Baluyevsky said Kremlin will not let the US 'meddle in Russia's backyard' by constructing its missile defense shield.
