The leaders of Russia, China and the United States after some time will begin negotiations on how to stop the actually started arms race, said the President of the United States Donald Trump.
“I am sure that at some point in the future President XI and I, together with Russian President Putin will begin to talk about a serious cessation of scale and uncontrolled arms race,” – wrote the American President on Twitter.
On October 21, Trump announced that the US is withdrawing from the Treaty on medium-and short-range missiles (INF). According to him, the United States “the only ones who remain in the agreement” and implement it, and Russia systematically violates the provisions of the document. In addition, Trump demanded that China join the INF TREATY.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the United States actually withdrew from the Treaty and do not comply with its terms. According to the Russian leader, Washington’s withdrawal from the Treaty on medium-and shorter-range missiles creates risks of an uncontrolled arms race.
