Russia wants to be in contention for one of the most important nuclear disarmament treaties of the United States not to put pressure on you. The Americans set the Ultimatum was unacceptable. The Deputy foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Saturday, the Russian news Agency Interfax. At the same time, he accused the United States, a lack of willingness to talk about the preservation of the so-called INF Treaty. There have been statements in Washington to continue the dialogue, said Ryabkov. "Such a willingness, we do not see."
The United States had set Moscow at the beginning of December an Ultimatum of 60 days, to the destruction of the Cruise missile is to appeal to with the name 9M729 (Nato-Code: SSC-8). If Russia violated the Treaty, it is for the USA no longer makes sense to remain in the Treaty, said at the time, US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo in Brussels. Thus, the US could start, theoretically, already at the beginning of February, for its part, the construction of new nuclear medium-range systems.
Both sides accuse himself of the breach of the agreement
The USA accuse Russia for some time, to remain in accordance with the development of the Cruise missile SSC-8 against the Treaty. Russia denies that and has accused, in return, the United States on several occasions a breach of contract.
The INF Treaty on nuclear medium-range systems (Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces) was concluded in 1987 between the United States and the former Soviet Union. He is obliged both sides to the abolition of all land-based ballistic missiles and cruise missiles with ranges between 500 and 5500 kilometers. At the same time, he also says the production and testing of such systems. (nlu/sda)
