The United States is considering the possibility of returning to the Open Skies Treaty

19

The head of the press service of the United States Department of State, Ned Price, answered questions from journalists at a briefing. Among other things, he said that the United States is considering the possibility of returning to the Open Skies Treaty (OON).


The questions from the media representatives and the answers of the American official were published on the official website of the US Department of State.

Price said that the issue will be studied, after which "in due course" the US authorities will make a decision. His words were in response to an earlier statement by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergei Lavrov. It said that Russia is ready not to start the procedure for withdrawing from the agreement if the United States decides to implement it again.

As far as we know, Russia still does not fully comply with this agreement.

- noted Ned Price, commenting on the words of the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The Open Skies Treaty is an agreement that allows military personnel from 33 signatory countries to conduct aerial inspections of each other's territories. Last fall, the United States withdrew from DON. In response, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on January 15 also announced the withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the agreement. Despite this, Moscow, under certain conditions, is ready to continue its participation in the Don.

    Well, just a Cartoon about Winnie the Pooh! Enters and leaves ... it comes out great (s).
    But they didn't bother to ask Russia's opinion, do we need this treaty and under what conditions?

      Yeah, peeping in person is still more interesting than relying on subordinates from NATO ?!
      Not everyone will see, they will not tell so ...

        The best way, in my opinion, is to answer: - She died so dead!
        At the current stage, anyway.

      If the United States intends to start a war with Russia, then they do not need this treaty; if they want to reduce the risk of an accidental exchange of nuclear strikes, then this treaty is useful to them. Russia does not seem to be going to attack the United States, our electronics are worse, the ability to conduct intelligence for the United States is also worse. therefore, the treaty is useful for us if it affects all areas from which we may face an attack by the US Army.

    If there is no agreement, there will be no accusations of breaking it.
    It is still not capable of stopping the spending of the US budget on the American army.
    And we already know the coordinates of the targets on the territory of our partners.

    If every four years a new president reverses the decisions of the previous one, who would want to do business with such a country? All the same, the United States is kirdyk!

    the United States is considering a return to the Open Skies Treaty (OST).
    Started for health, but ended for peace
    As far as we know, Russia still does not fully comply with this agreement.
    But as far as we know, it was the United States that limited the flight routes of our aircraft, did not allow aircraft referring to some wrong equipment ...

    However, the point of the striped ones is not iron, just back with the heels. They are in vain, they have a cool clown, with the letter Ze.

    Lavrov, with his hasty proposal, made it possible for him to "heed". At the same time, if he had voiced Russia's firm resolve to withdraw from the treaty, he would have made a fuss. It is necessary to act according to "Stalinist", otherwise ".... for the state it is insulting" !!!

      Yes, they are just playing for time, and their allies are conducting reconnaissance at the same time.

    They come back because Trump came out. And that was wrong. When they return, they will come out correctly, in Biden's way.

    I said earlier at VO that they themselves would come running to us in order to extend this unprofitable Agreement. While they have made a trial injection, expecting our reaction, which should be the same - a complete ignorance of their injection, until they officially contact us with a proposal. And we can also revise some positions that are disadvantageous to us, in terms of limiting some flight zones. So the trump cards are in our hands - it's obvious.

      In fact, Lavrov was the first to speak about the return of DON, and the Americans reacted to his words afterwards. But whether we need it or not is another question.
