US formally withdraws from INF missile treaty, says Russia ‘responsible’: Pompeo
The United States on Friday formally abandoned the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia, a statement from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, accusing Moscow of deliberately violating the Cold War-era arms pact.
“The US withdrawal... of the treaty takes effect today,” Pompeo said on a visit to Bangkok for a regional summit.
“Russia is solely responsible for the treaty’s demise,” he added.
Russia on Friday called on the US to implement a moratorium on deploying intermediate-range nuclear missiles, as Washington officially dropped the major arms treaty.
