Trump vows to outspend Russian Federation without new missile pact

Russia to prevent deployment of US missiles to Baltic States

Russian Federation suspended the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty at the weekend after Washington announced it would withdraw in six months unless Russian Federation ended what it says were violations of the pact.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, accompanied by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, using binoculars as he inspects the joint Zapad-2017 (West-2017) Russian military exercises with Belarus at the Luzhsky training ground in the Leningrad region on September 18, 2017. "And by us staying with the treaty, we're not able to adjust to current events quickly".

While pointing the finger at Russia, US officials have voiced concern that the 1987 treaty does not constrain China, whose rapidly growing military relies on medium-range missiles as a core part of its defense strategy. "(...) The last thing the world needs right now is a nuclear arms race".

Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics of Latvia - for which former ruler Russian Federation looms large as a threat - voiced hope that Washington and Moscow would work with other powers on a new agreement.

Donald Trump names Vietnam for summit with Kim Jong
It has also been used as a model of economic and political reform for impoverished and isolated North Korea to follow. Trump met Kim Jong Un in June in Singapore, the first summit between leaders of the United States and North Korea.

On February 2, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Moscow also suspended its obligations under the treaty in response to the U.S. move.

Russian Federation welcomed an offer by US President Donald Trump to renegotiate a landmark nuclear missile pact after he quit the agreement, while cautioning that it's received no specific proposals yet.

He recalled that to save the INF Treaty, Russia has done its utmost to engage the United States in conversation and offering concrete initiatives to find a solution. The 60 days were up at the beginning of February. The U.S.is "actively working on creating ground-based missiles with the range capability of over 500 kilometers [310 miles], which is outside the treaty-stipulated limitations".

Moscow has vehemently denied the claims, citing a lack of proof, and stressed that the range of these weapons was 480 km, which is in full compliance of the INF.
