Russian Federation to prevent deployment of USA missiles to Baltic States

Russian Federation to prevent deployment of USA missiles to Baltic States

Russian Federation would be prepared to consider new proposals from the United States to replace a suspended Cold War-era nuclear pact with a broader treaty that includes more countries, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday. "In which case we will outspend and out-innovate all others, by far", Trump added.

The INF Treaty banned land-based nuclear-capable missiles with a range between 300 and 3,200 miles during the Reagan administration when Russian Federation and the U.S. had populated much of Europe with intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

"During 2019-2020 we have to develop a land-based version of the seaborne Kalibr system equipped with a long-range cruise missile which showed good results in Syria", Shoigu told defense officials.

On Thursday, Andrea Thompson, the U.S. Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security ultimate converses in Beijing with Sergei Ryabkov, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister prior to the lapse of a U.S. 60-day deadline for Moscow to return into consistency with the settlement. They have also countered with our systems that are in violation.

He recalled that to save the INF Treaty, Russia has done its utmost to engage the United States in conversation and offering concrete initiatives to find a solution.

Romanian Foreign Affairs minister Teodor Melescanu reacted to Russia's demands and said that the Deveselu facility is purely defensive and that accusations that this base could be used to launch nuclear missiles is "a baseless gimmick" used by Russian Federation to justify its construction of missiles that violate the INF treaty and create "a real danger, and not just for Romania".

In his State of the Union speech on Tuesday night, US President Donald Trump announced that the United States "is developing a state of the art missile defence system", and "will never apologize for advancing America's interests".

"I will make every possible effort to prevent it", he said.
