Trump's adviser meets Russian defense minister in Moscow
26 October, 2018, 00:56 | Author: Carlos George
Putintold reporters on Wednesday that Russian Federation would have to respond in kind and would do so swiftly if the United States quit the pact.
Putin also warned that if the New START Treaty is not renewed, there will be nothing left of arms control between Moscow and Washington, given that the USA has already left the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, and is now talking about leaving the INF. They argue Russian Federation would be unshackled if the INF treaty were abandoned and could seek to develop more short- and medium-range ground-launched nuclear missiles.
The Russian President said his response would be "very fast and effective". The U.S. has not filed its formal notice of withdrawal yet, though he says it will be done "in due course".
But Trump did not rule out signing a new agreement with Moscow and Beijing if Russian Federation and China accept to stop developing such weapons. "We don't want a new arms race", he said at a news conference announcing the start of NATO's biggest military exercises since that era of tensions ended in 1991.
The two leaders plan a "normal, bilateral meeting" on November 11, Bolton told reporters Tuesday.
Bolton told Shoigu he was in Moscow to work on Trump's commitment to improve security cooperation with Russian Federation.
"The threat is not America's INF withdrawal from the treaty. So Russia could keep the missiles it's developing and have fewer of the longer range ones", said Weitz. And though they are not formally part of the treaty, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic have also destroyed their intermediate-range missiles.
What is Russian Federation accused of?
Trump has said he is pulling out of the 1987 treaty because Russian Federation has been violating it since at least 2014 and because it does not apply to China, which has been developing the kind of short- and intermediate-range missiles eliminated by Russian Federation and the United States under the treaty. He noted that previous efforts to expand the treaty to include other countries had come to nothing. He also said that "there would be nothing left except an arms race" if the United States also refused to renew New START, a 2010 agreement that restricts both sides' nuclear arsenals and is set to expire in 2021.
While both sides allege violations, ending the treaty now would be "unwise" and beneficial for Russian Federation, according to Steven Pifer, a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institute who focuses on arms control, the U.S. and Europe.

In another sign of the tensions, at the start of their meeting, the Russian leader asked Bolton if the eagle on the seal of the United States, which clutches olive branches in one claw and arrows in the other, "has eaten all the olives, leaving only arrows?"
"Hopefully I'll have some answers for you", Bolton replied.
At a NATO summit in the summer, all 29 allies, including the United States, reasserted they were "fully committed to the preservation of this landmark arms control treaty".
Bolton, on the other hand, underlined the importance of maintaining a dialogue open between Washington and Moscow regardless of current differences. He saidMoscow would have to "take retaliatory measures to neutralize possible military threats".
The pact was signed by U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987.
Mr Putin rejected Mr Trump's claim that Russian Federation breached the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.
Some analysts in Europe say the U.S.is unlikely to find allies willing to host on their soil American INF missiles, fearing that would trigger a repeat of the kind of massive protests seen in the 1980s.
He said: "If the United States does withdraw from the INF treaty, the main question is what they will do with these [intermediate-range] missiles that will once again appear".
"It was not true then and it will not be true now", he said.
