The United States has recently criticized Russia in Brussels, accusing it of providing false information on a controversial missile system that contravenes the Treaty of Inter-Nuclear Force (INF), according to AFP, according to Agerpres.
Undersecretary of State Andrea Thompson said that the talks between Russians and Americans in Geneva "did not make things happen" and showed no sign that Moscow is preparing to comply with the provisions of the INF. Last month, Washington gave Moscow a 60-day ultimatum to comply with the INF, threatening otherwise to withdraw from the pact. Moscow denies any violation of the treaty, notes AFP.
"They (the Russians) have pretended to be transparent … They continue to evade questions, continue to provide false information about the capabilities of the new missile system," said Andrea Thompson after a briefing at NATO headquarters in Brussels. Reflecting on Russian proposals – especially that on the "static" missile show – the US official said he would not try if the new Russian missile violates the treaty.
The INF Treaty – signed by US President Ronald Reagan and the last Soviet leader, Mihail Gorbachev – prohibits the use of a range of missiles with distances between 500 and 5,500 km. In turn, Moscow accuses the United States of installing Mk-41 rocket launchers in its missile defense device in Europe, including Romania, in violation of the treaty, according to Russian media. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that Russia is ready to work to "save" the treaty, but after the talks in Geneva on Tuesday, the US party has agreed that it could start the process of exiting the treaty. last February 2nd, a process that will last for six months.
