US President Donald Trump has now confirmed that U.S will withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) that it has with Russia, blaming Russian non-compliance.
The president told reporters, “We’ll have to develop those weapons. We’re going to terminate the agreement and we’re going to pull out.”
He had earlier said that “If Russia’s doing [it], and China’s doing it, and we’re adhering to the agreement, that’s unacceptable,”
A spokesperson for the Kremlin stated that Russia will also withdraw from the INF Treaty if the U.S does, and start developing new missiles.
This situation can lead to another arms race.
