Vladimir Putin to meet USA envoy John Bolton over scrapped nuclear treaty

US President Donald Trump said on Monday that the United States is ready to build up its nuclear arsenal after announcing it is abandoning a Cold War-era nuclear treaty, as Russian Federation warned the withdrawal could cripple global security.

"We're hamstrung in a number of ways, one of which is some of our treaties are self-limiting in my opinion", Harris testified before the House Armed Services Committee earlier this year. The 1987 pact helps protect the security of the U.S. and its allies in Europe and the Far East.

The US military industrial complex will try to justify the nuclear build-up by pointing to China's militarization, a growing source of concern for the military establishment.

"But Russia has not, unfortunately, honoured the agreement". "This should have been done years ago".

"Russia is and has been devoted to the clauses of the agreement, and we think the intention of the U.S.to withdraw is, of course, concerning because such steps, if taken, can make the world a more unsafe place", said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

"The US now wants to leave the INF". So we're going to terminate the agreement.

"When they do, then we'll all stop". And by the way, not only stop, we'll reduce, which I would love to do. "[Russia has] not adhered to the spirit of that agreement or to the agreement itself". "Russia, China not as good at the agreement, they should be".

John Bolton, the U.S. national security adviser, will hold talks about nuclear security with President Putin today after President Trump announced Washington's withdrawal from a long-standing non-proliferation agreement. You can't do that. "You can't play that game on me".

Flu shot program kicks off in Sask.
That includes pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and people with underlying health conditions and their caregivers. Federal officials say more than 80,000 people died nationwide from flu past year , including more than 150 in CT .

The landmark treaty was signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev and led to almost 2,700 short- and medium-range missiles being eliminated.

Despite repeated Russian denials, USA authorities believe Moscow is developing and has deployed a ground-launched system in breach of the treaty that could allow it to launch a nuclear strike on Europe at short notice. "The time has come to set the Treaty aside and develop alternative avenues toward the security the treaty once provided", Risch said.

However, the fate of the latter is also uncertain, with US National Security Advisor John Bolton saying on Monday that Washington has yet to finalize its position on the treaty.

In any case, he added, a bilateral treaty no longer met today's realities because unlike in the Cold War, multiple states are now developing intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

On Sunday, one of the original signatories of the INF treaty, Mikhail Gorbachev, said a United States withdrawal would reverse efforts made to achieve nuclear disarmament.

Noting that the U.S. is already investing more than Dollars 1 trillion to modernize its nuclear arsenal, including developing a new air-launched cruise missile and a risky low-yield' ballistic missile, she said United States does not need to spend more money on more nuclear weapons.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke to Trump on Sunday to stress the importance of the treaty, his office said on Monday.
