Germany's Merkel Regrets Russia 'Gave A Reason' For US To End INF Missile Treaty

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday that Russia was to blame for the United States' decision to pull out from their landmark Intermediate-Range NuclearForces Treaty (INF), Urdu Point reported citing Sputnik.

The nuclear pact came to an end on August 2 after the United States repeatedly accused Russia of breaching the INF, a claim denied by Moscow.

"I deeply regret that Russia objectively violated the INF treaty and gave [the US] a reason to cancel it... We will, together with our NATO partners, do everything to push for more arms control... in coming years," Merkel told reporters.
