Russian Foreign Ministry comments on Trump’s call for giving up nuclear weapons

Moscow welcomes U.S. President Donald Trump’s call addressed to Russia, the United States and China for giving up nuclear weapons, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said at a press briefing in the run-up to the third session of the preparatory committee of the 2020 NPT Review Conference.

"In a situation where the role of nuclear weapons in US doctrine-related documents and their gradual transition to a class of weapons that can be used on the battlefield such statements can be only welcomed," TASS cited Ryabkov as saying.

Russia is closely following reports in the United States that the U.S. would like to reach a nuclear weapons deal with both Russia and China, and is "willing" to negotiate, including the story reported by CNN earlier today.
