MOSCOW, Oct 12 (Reuters) The United States said today it would continue talks with Russia on deploying its missile shield in eastern Europe, while Moscow maintained it could not accept the plan because of its ''anti-Russian potential''.

Questions on the missile defence ''remain to be agreed,'' US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told a news conference.

''What we cannot agree upon today, is the deployment in Europe of a missile defence which has strong anti-Russian potential,'' Russian Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov told the same news conference.

''And we will continue to look for a common ground at the level of experts on this issue.'' Reuters PD DB1902
