Trump calls out Russia for violating nuclear treaty

Russia to prevent deployment of US missiles to Baltic States

The United States could begin research and development on weapons previously barred by the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, according to multiple U.S. officials - a move likely to play into concerns about a new nuclear arms race.

The US will quit conforming to a milestone nuclear pact with Russian Federation when this weekends after last-ditch chats with Moscow to spare it bombed, a senior USA arms control official stated on Thursday.

"Perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others, or perhaps we can't-in which case, we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far", Trump said during his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening.

However, since Romania hosts the USA missile-defense system on its territory, "it can not be overlooked by the Russian defense planning", Kuzmin said in response to an RFE/RL reporter's question.

"I am sure that everyone who is somehow involved in our foreign policy, defense and security activities will work as a team to prevent a situation that would mean everything that was a cornerstone of European security for decades has perished", the senior Russian diplomat said. Ryabkov said at a news conference in Moscow. They have also countered with our systems that are in violation.

"I would advocate - even if it is going to take a very long period of time, even if it may be a very, sometimes, complex and disappointing, from time to time, process - it would be good to try to find a way forward on a multilateral arms control agreement in this area", Rinkevics told AFP.

He explained this process of creating a new agreement is still in the early stages, and the USA has yet to send any definite proposals.

"The hard answer is that I don't see now much appetite to do anything in this direction, nearly from everyone", Rinkevics said.

Russian Federation has warned the United States of a "tit-for-tat" response if the latter tries to militarily contain Russian Federation.
