Lavrov Says Moscow Preparing Answers To U.S. Nuclear-Treaty Concerns

US Presiden Ronald Reagan and final Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed the INF treaty in 1987

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said October 28 that Moscow has started preparing answers to the questions related to the INF treaty posed by us officials.

25 de octubre de 2018, 14:33Moscow, Oct 25 (Prensa Latina) Russia has reiterated that it will respond to attempts by the United States to sabotage the Medium-Range and Short-Range Nuclear Weapons (INF) Treaty, said Thursday the spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry of this country, Maria Zajarova.

Lavrov said Russian Federation is preparing answers to the list of questions from the US side regarding the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Force (INF) Treaty.

The president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, and the president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev, signed the INF in Washington, on December 8, 1987, after having agreed on it the year before at the Reykjavik, Iceland, summit.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Washington's withdrawal from the INF Treaty could lead to a new "arms race".

The United States is coordinating with European allies on its exit from a nuclear arms treaty with Russian Federation, according to Defense Secretary James Mattis. Each is ever eager to develop, test, and deploy new weapons systems.

Washington has accused Moscow of violating the accord years.

Submarines are of special importance and a high priority in the current modernization of Russia's nuclear forces.

The Trump administration identifies both Russian Federation and China as "revisionist powers" and "strategic competitors" of the United States. "I think there's zero chance of that happening", he said when asked what will it take for the U.S.to change its mind. "We started work on the preparation of a response to American concerns", - said the Russian Minister. According to Adm. Harry Harris, former commander of U.S. Pacific Command, China possesses the "largest and most diverse missile force in the world" - and 95 percent of its missiles "would violate the INF [Treaty] if China was a signatory".

The US under the INF Treaty does have the right to withdraw from the agreement.

Mattis did not rule out the possibility that the United States would once again deploy intermediate-range missiles on land in Europe, nor did he say that it wouldn't happen, citing his policy of not telegraphing such moves in advance.

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN: (Through interpreter) If it gets to the point that European countries agree to base USA missiles then they should understand they're putting themselves under threat of a potential retaliatory strike.

"At that point I'm certain we'll have some kind of culminating point", Mattis said.
