Russian Arms Threat

MADRID () -- A secret NATO report sees Russian arms posing a growing military threat to the alliance because of corruption, unchecked exports and a surplus of weapons designers with deadly skills, a Spanish newspaper said Monday.

"The potential threat to NATO stemming from Russian arms proliferation could increase," the daily El Mundo quoted the document as saying.

NATO Secretary General Javier Solana admitted the existence of the report but played down its importance.
