MOSCOW, 26 Oct — the United States should remain in the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate-range and shorter-range nuclear forces (INF), as well as to encourage the accession of new States to the agreement, former us Secretary of state George Shultz.
Earlier, the President of the United States Donald trump announced that the United States does not intend to comply with the Treaty on intermediate-range and shorter-range when it breaks, and will be released from the contract. Trump said the United States will increase its nuclear capacity until then while the rest of us “don’t come around”, and after Washington will be ready to stop this process and even to proceed to arms reduction.
“Whatever happens, we need to maintain this agreement, and not out of it, like threatening the President trump. Instead, we should invite other countries to join the agreement, and to refrain from the temptation to develop new classes of these deadly weapons,” wrote Schultz in his newspaper article for the newspaper New York Times.
