BRUSSELS, 5 Dec — the EU hoped that the US and Russia use the remaining 60 days for the preservation of the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty), which is necessary for security on the European continent, said Thursday the head of the EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini.
Earlier, the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that Russia has two months to return to the implementation of the INF Treaty. He added that if that happens, Washington will suspend obligations under the INF Treaty. The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova in response to the word Pompeo said that Moscow is strictly implementing the agreement, and Washington knows this.
“Europe has long been a battleground in the cold war confrontation, so we appreciate the security architecture that so many years have guaranteed peace and security on the European continent, and the INF Treaty guaranteed peace and security in Europe for 30 years. He must be fully executed,” — said Mogerini, arriving for talks at NATO.
