The UN is concerned about the erosion of the arms control regime

The UN is concerned about the erosion of the arms control regime between the US and Russia, UN Secretary-General’s official representative Stephane Dujarric said at a briefing, commenting on reports of the intention of the States to withdraw from the open skies Treaty.

“We reiterate our concern about the erosion of the arms control regime between the US and Russia,” Dujarric said.

According to him, this regime is beneficial to the entire international community, in particular in the issue of curbing the strategic arms race.

“Ending such agreements without replacing them with something else could lead to destabilizing actions, such as a new arms race, which could lead to possible miscalculations,” Dujarric said.
