Putin Thanks Romney

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Mitt Romney's characterization of his country as the United States' "number one geopolitical foe" has actually helped Russia, ABC News reports.

Said Putin: "I'm grateful to him for formulating his stance so clearly because he has once again proven the correctness of our approach to missile defense problems."

The Russian leader said Romney's comments "strengthened his resolve to oppose NATO's plan for a missile defense shield in Eastern Europe, a system Russia believes will degrade its nuclear deterrent. The U.S. insists the system is aimed at Iran, not Russia."
