Putin warns new 'arms race' if US exits missile treaty

Putin warns new 'arms race' if US exits missile treaty

"But he echoed Trump's assertions of Russian violations of the pact, suggesting that no progress was made to ease the impasse during Bolton's talks with top Russian officials including President Vladimir Putin".

"I have a question", Mr. Putin said with grin.

On October 20, US President Donald Trump escalated the war of words by announcing intentions to withdraw from the 31-year-old treaty with Moscow, a move analysts said would greatly impact European Union security.

He said that, based on US intelligence and Russia's reluctance to discuss the missile system with NATO, "the most plausible explanation is that Russian Federation is in violation of the treaty".

Joking about the eagle on the Great Seal of the United States, Mr. Putin noted the olive laurel of peace and the collection of arrows for war the eagle clutches in its talons. Laughing, Putin asked if the eagle ate all the olives.

The treaty was signed by U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. They've been violating it for many years, ' Trump told reporters in Nevada, referring to the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Beijing rebuked Trump, with the foreign ministry saying it would not be blackmailed into joining the treaty.

President Donald Trump said over the weekend that the United States intends to pull out of the 1987 agreement banning short- and intermediate-range missiles that are launched from land.

Despite concerns about its capabilities, Stoltenberg said he does not "foresee that allies will deploy more nuclear weapons in Europe as a response to the new Russian missile".

Speaking at a news conference after the talks with Putin, Bolton emphasized that the USA has been confident that Russian Federation has violated the treaty by testing and deploying a ground-based cruise missile.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty prohibits the United States and Russian Federation from possessing, producing or test-flying a ground-launched cruise missile with a range of 300 to 3,400 miles.

Bolton also said that China's cyberattacks against the United States made Russian Federation seem like the "junior partner".

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that threat of USA withdrawal "adds to worries about a heated arms race in the Asia-Pacific region amid the rapid rise of China's military might".

Mr Trump said on Saturday: 'We've honoured the agreement, but Russian Federation has not ... so we're going to terminate the agreement.' He did not provide details on the violations. He cited efforts in weapons development by China, Iran and others not bound by the restrictions of the INF Treaty. "It is actually a declaration of an intention to get involved in an arms race and increase the potential of armaments", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a daily briefing.

Moscow denies any interference in the elections.

"We don't want a new Cold War".

Speaking at a press conference after meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Putin spoke about Washington's decision to withdraw from the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Shoigu also said in comments carried by Russian news agencies on Tuesday that Russia and the US also should build up on their cooperation in Syria.

President Donald Trump said on Monday 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.

After a meeting in Moscow between Mr Putin and Mr Trump's national security advisor John Bolton, officials on both sides said a preliminary agreement to hold a November 11 meeting in the French capital had been reached, and that detailed arrangements were underway.

"Boris Nemtsov tried to make Russia more free and more flourishing", the U.S. Embassy said on its Russian-language Twitter account.
