Trump says no INF deal without China
Date created : Latest update :
President Vladimir Putin said Saturday Russia was suspending its participation in a key Cold War-era missile treaty as the US did the same. China opposed the US decision and urged both countries to hold “constructive” discussions. Moscow and Washington have long accused the other of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) agreement, which was signed in 1987 and resolved a crisis over Soviet missiles. President Donald Trump had announced plans to withdraw last year, unless Russia fulfilled its obligations.
