Denmark could face nuclear attack if it joins missile shield


COPENHAGEN: Russia’s ambassador to Denmark said on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization country’s navy could be targeted by nuclear missiles if it joins the Western alliance’s anti-missile shield. The threat made by Ambassador Mikhail Vanin in an opinion piece he wrote for the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten sparked an angry reaction and came amid an increasingly Cold War-style standoff between Moscow and the West. “I do not think that the Danes fully understand the consequences of what happens if Denmark joins the US-led missile defence,” Ambassador Mikhail Vanin wrote in the daily. “If this happens Danish warships become targets for Russian nuclear missiles,” he added.
