Russian First Vice Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov has offered to abandon plans to deploy missiles in Russia's European territory if the United States accepts its proposals on its anti-ballistic missile system, Russian news agencies reported Wednesday.

"If our proposals are accepted then Russia will no longer have the necessity to deploy new missile weapons in the north of the country, including in the Kaliningrad region," Ivanov was quoted as saying.

Russia, however, will "take adequate measures to ensure security" if the United States will not drop its plans, Ivanov said.

Washington's plan to deploy interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic has encountered fierce opposition from Russia.

Putin, who wrapped up his informal visit to his U.S. counterpart, George W. Bush,on Tuesday, proposed last month a joint radar warning system in Azerbaijan as a substitute for Washington's anti-missile system.
