President Vladimir Putin says many other countries had developed weapons banned under the INF treaty

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks in Moscow Russia

Trump's chief diplomat Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters for a ministerial meeting on Tuesday and won support for a tough stance from the allies. Moscow has returned accusations of non-compliance on the U.S., arguing that United States bases in Eastern Europe are not defensive but offensive and could potentially be used to target Russian Federation.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told NATO ministers that Washington would begin the process of withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) within 60 days if Moscow did not start complying with the terms of the pact. The treaty is set to expire in 2021, but Russian Federation has expressed an interest in having it renewed.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) announced her support for the Trump administration's decision to remove the United States from the Intermediate-Rang Nuclear Forces Treaty if Russian Federation does not comply within 60 days, saying on Tuesday action must be taken to counter the "grave the threat from Russian Federation".

If Russia does not comply within the 60-day deadline, the United States will begin the six-month process of formally withdrawing from the INF treaty.

President Trump and National Security Adviser John Bolton had previously suggested the US would withdraw from the treaty, but Pompeo's announcement Tuesday officially starts the clock.

China, North Korea, and Iran are not obligated by the treaty's limitations, and, "This leaves them free to build all the intermediate range missiles they would like", he said.

However, Nato allies would have to agree unanimously to have any new missile deployed in Europe. According to some reports, the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, convinced Trump at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires to delay formal withdrawal proceedings until the new year.

Pompeo said Russia's violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty undermine American national security and as such, the U.S. should not be "constrained" by a treaty that hampers its ability to respond.

"They are not going to change course on the basis of a US threat to withdraw", Kimball said.

The statement came in response to us concerns over Russia's nuclear activity.

Stoltenberg said that he regretted seeing the INF come to a close. He added that Russia's actions "greatly undermine America's national security and that of our allies".

The Secretary of State claimed that the U.S. was "upholding the rule of law" and was bound by its global commitments.

In the case of the INF accord, however, Europe sought to find a last-minute degree of common ground by arguing that any unilateral USA withdrawal without giving Russian Federation a final chance to show goodwill would let the Kremlin point the finger at Trump.
