MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has no far-reaching plans to suspend further agreements with the United States, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday proposed a law suspending a Moscow-Washington agreement to dispose of weapons-grade plutonium.

"I wouldn't see far-reaching plans (in this)," Peskov said, adding that there was no connection between nuclear security issues and sanctions imposed on Russia by Western countries.
