Trump Complains About Cost of 'Uncontrollable' Arms Race”

Nuclear experts have said there is strong evidence Russian Federation is violating the INF treaty and the USA is justified for criticizing Moscow in this regard, but also warned ripping the deal up opens a unsafe door for Russian Federation.

Pompeo said there is "complete unity" among NATO members on this decision, and it comes after the Foreign Ministers of NATO released a joint statement that says Russia's development and deployment specifically of the 9M729 missile system "poses significant risks to Euro-Atlantic security" and "is in material breach of its obligations under the INF Treaty", paving the way for US withdrawal.

If Russia does not comply within the 60-day deadline, the United States will begin the six-month process of formally withdrawing from the INF treaty.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that Washington will suspend its obligations under the 1987 INF nuclear treaty within 60 days if Russian Federation does not "return to compliance".

December 3, 2018 (EIRNS)-President Donald Trump has used his Twitter account this morning to make several forward-looking statements about his potential cooperation with Presidents Xi Jinping of China and Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation, following the U.S.

One of the key treaties that helped to end the Cold War and reduce nuclear tensions between the USA and the Soviet Union and now Russian Federation could be dead within a matter of months.

Washington says the system contravenes the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which bans all land-based cruise missiles with a range between 500 and 5,500 kilometers (310-3,410 miles), and President Donald Trump is threatening to pull out of the bilateral pact. The U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also said that his country is suspending its obligations under the agreement.

If Russia failed to comply, the US would consider the treaty to be null and void.

In Moscow, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that "Russia strictly complies with the provisions of the treaty, and the American side is aware of that".

But as to what more North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would do beyond its existing sea patrols and air policing, he said: "There is already a lot of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in the Black Sea".

"We either bury our head in the sand or we take common sense action", he said. That ethos, driven by center-left politicians from the US and Canada, is pretty much the exact opposite of Trump's desire for bilateral, transactional, anything-goes deals that privilege culturally similar partners.

"Measures were considered to reinforce the armed forces' combat capacity and means amid the mounting arms race related to the US plans to quit the INF Treaty", Shoigu told reporters during a conference.
