Noting the 30 anniversary of the treaty, delegations expressed the view that the INF Museum continues to play an important role in the existing system of international security, nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, and (stated) that they will work to preserve and strengthen it,reported in the State Department on the results of the meeting of the verification commission of the contract.
Recall, Russia and the United States have repeatedly accused each other of developing systems that violate the contract. Washington suggested that Moscow “return to compliance” with the provisions of the document. Russia rejected the accusations and, in turn, suggested that the United States comply with the INF Treaty.
On Thursday at a big press conference, Vladimir Putin announced that the United States had actually withdrawn from the INF Treaty. At the same time, he recalled that Russia did not withdraw from the fundamental treaties that were the cornerstone of international security, including the anti-missile defense treaties, while the United States withdrew from it unilaterally.
