Minsk calls Russian nukes 'deterrent'

Belarusian diplomat Sergey Rachkov on Saturday defended the country's possible hosting of Russian nuclear weapons on its territory.

"I want to emphasize that the Republic of Belarus does not violate its international obligations in this area," he said, noting that Moscow's move would serve to deter possible aggression.

His comments come after Russian President Vladimir Putin last week promised to station Russian weapons in the neighboring country.
