No New Nuclear Arms In Europe Despite Russian Treaty Breach

President Donald Trump addresses a

He said Russian Federation was cheating on the deal and that it was flawed because China is not a signatory.

"The deployment of short or intermediate ground-based missiles to, say, Japan would add to United States capabilities in the region and erode the Chinese advantage, which has been built over decades", Ni said.

"The European nations that would agree to that should understand that they would expose their territory to the threat of a possible retaliatory strike", he said.

"We of course want to see this treaty continue to stand but it does require two parties to be committed to it and at the moment you have one party that is ignoring it", Williamson said.

U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton was dispatched to Moscow for emergency talks, where he said there would be wider consultations with "other" participants. They have a range banned by the treaty and are capable of hitting European targets, the Americans say.

Stoltenberg blamed Russian Federation for violating the treaty by developing the Novator 9M729, a land-based cruise missile which violates the ranges spelled out the in the 1987 treaty.

"Trump's threat of an arms race comes on the heels of his weekend announcement that the USA would be withdrawing from the landmark Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russian Federation because Moscow had violated the Cold War-era agreement".

President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed the INF treaty in 1987, leading to the elimination of an entire category of nuclear missiles and the removal of more than 2,500 of them from installations across Europe.

Russia's response would be "very quick and effective", he said.

Trump Keeps Spouting Conspiracy Theories About Migrant Caravan Headed To Border
And as Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale pointed out, those actually covering the caravan completely contradict Trump's claims. He asserted without evidence in his flurry of tweets that " unknown Middle Easterners " were among those in the caravan .

"Throughout his time on the political stage, Trump has often linked nuclear arms with national strength and greatness", noted Christopher Galdieri, assistant professor at Saint Anselm College. "The important thing is what decisions will come next". But Stoltenberg did not encourage the U.S., the biggest and most influential member of NATO, to stay in the treaty.

An analysis by the Council on Foreign Relations this week described the 9M729 as an "extended-range version" of Russia's Iskander K, a shorter-range cruise missile that is compliant with the INF Treaty.

"And I don't foresee that (Nato) allies will deploy more nuclear weapons in Europe as a response to the new Russian missile", he added. He said he was referring to both Russian Federation and China, and "anybody else that wants to play that game".

Reactions have been even more pointed in Europe, where the European Union asserted in a statement Monday that "the world doesn't need a new arms race that would benefit no one and on the contrary, would bring even more instability". Putin has repeatedly denied those charges and a Russian official said the issue was raised but not discussed. He's certainly the lawful president of the United States.

U.S. president Donald Trump has accused Russian Federation of breaching the treaty by possessing banned missiles with ranges between 500km and 5,500km.

President Donald Trump says he is withdrawing from a landmark Cold War-era arms treaty with Russian Federation because Moscow has been violating the agreement for years.

In his first remarks since Washington announced on Saturday that it planned to pull out of the INF Treaty, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg lay blame on Russian Federation for violating the treaty by developing the SSC-8, a land-based, intermediate-range Cruise missile which also has the name of Novator 9M729.

"This is a Cold War bilateral ballistic missile-related treaty in a multipolar ballistic missile world", Mr. Bolton said, adding that Washington has been weighing "the conceptual possibility of universalizing the treaty" - getting Beijing and others to sign - for more than a decade. Russia, which shares a border with Norway, has been briefed by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on the exercises and invited to monitor them, but the move has still angered Moscow. Russia's defense minister warned that Moscow could be forced to respond to increased North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military activities near its western border. Moscow is also certain to blame the US for the death of a treaty it claims to still honor. This article is strictly for informational purposes only.
