US will pull out of nuke treaty with Russia

During his appearance in Sochi, Putin told the audience that US -backed forces fighting against IS "did not finish their job".

The New York Times reported on October 19 that Bolton plans to warn Russian President Vladimir Putin that the Trump administration is preparing to leave the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), negotiated by former President Ronald Reagan during the waning days of the Soviet Union.

But the pact has also constrained the United States from deploying new weapons to respond to China's efforts to cement a dominant position in the Western Pacific and to keep USA naval forces at bay. "Despite our objections, Russian Federation continues to produce and field prohibited cruise missiles and has ignored calls for transparency".

"Russia has violated the agreement".

He added that the development of the new weapons was in response to the United States withdrawing from a Cold War-era treaty that banned missile defences and Washington's moves to develop a missile defence system.




The agreement has constrained the USA from developing new weapons, but America will begin developing them unless Russian Federation and China agree not to possess or develop the weapons, Trump said. China is not now party to the pact.

However, officials in Washington have questioned whether Putin actually has any capabilities beyond those already known to the U.S. military.

Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of MA, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said pulling out of the treaty would play into Russia's hands, undermine US security and betray NATO allies.

Critics of Trump have accused him of being soft on Russian Federation, and both Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Congress are pushing for more sanctions on Moscow.

The audience cheers as U.S. President Donald Trump arrives at Elko Regional Airport on Saturday for a campaign rally.
