Lavrov: U.S. tests show Washington not to get back to compliance with INF Treaty
The latest missile tests in the United States indicate that Washington has no intention of getting back to compliance with the Intermediate Nuclear Force Treaty, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told an audience of students and teachers at the MGIMO university and the Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy on the occasion of the beginning of a new academic year.
He said Washington had already ruined that treaty on a far-fetched pretext.
"The United States has already tested an intermediate range ground-based missile using a launcher it has all the way positioned as capable of launching only missile interceptors," TASS cited him as saying.
"This indicates that Washington has no intention of getting back to compliance with that treaty," the Russian top diplomat said.
