U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
BRUSSELS, 4 Dec — US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the United States will work with allies in Europe and other countries to confront threats around the world, especially if Russia, in his opinion, does not comply with the INF Treaty.
“European countries you can be sure that in promoting and protecting stability in Europe and around the world from the threats of nuclear medium-range missiles, especially from Russia, we will work closely with its European and other allies in the world who are also under the threat of such a missile system,” said Pompeo on Tuesday in Brussels at a press conference.
He noted that the INF Treaty ceased to be relevant, because, as he says, “only one party has complied with it”, and the contract was, in fact, the “austerity” document. “Strategically (for USA) no longer makes sense to remain in this position and we will work out our next steps,” said US Secretary of state, refusing to give details of strategy States in this direction.
