According to Trump, business with Russia is “very difficult.” “But we need it, it has nuclear power, and it’s a big country. We need to do business with it anyway, without artificial interference,” he said.
Earlier it was reported about the intention of US representatives to discuss with Russian colleagues the idea of a new agreement on nuclear arms control. At the same time, it was noted that the American side did not plan to change the policy under the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate-range missiles (INF).
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to suspend the implementation of the INF Treaty on March 4. This was a mirror response of Russia to similar actions of Washington. His American counterpart Donald Trump announced plans to withdraw from the Treaty on October 2018, accusing Moscow of violating the document.
