Russian DM says new anti-US missiles must be developed

President Donald Trump on Friday announced the US was suspending its obligations under the INF treaty as of Saturday and starting a process to withdraw in six months. — File US pulls out of nuclear treaty with Russia that's been a centrepiece since the Cold War

The reason for the subtle cold war is the United States fears of resurgent Russian Federation.

He said Russia is not striving for a Cold War-style arms race, adding that the country will work within the budget of the Russian defense ministry.

On Friday, the United States announced the suspension of its participation in the Cold War era treaty that banned ground-launched medium-range missiles with a range of 310-3,400 miles. His signature is all over the INF Treaty withdrawal, just as it was with Trump's willful violation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, or the "Iran Deal") in 2018.

Experts say the United States and Russian Federation abandoning of the INF treaty delivered a huge blow to the global arms control regime and worldwide security.

"Today, more than ever, it is important to make every effort on both sides of the Atlantic to restore and strengthen confidence-building measures in order to prevent the deployment of medium and shorter-range missiles in Europe".

But Moscow insists the disputed 9M729 missile is allowed under the treaty.

The US has accused Russian Federation of developing and deploying a cruise missile that violates provisions of the pact that ban production, testing and deployment of land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500km.

The Nobel Peace Prize recipient International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons tweeted Friday: "By pulling out of the #INF, the USA waves the start flag for a new nuclear arms race & proves there's no such thing as a responsible nuclear armed state".

"Within the same time limits, we need to develop the ground-based system with the long-range hypersonic missile".

"The bigger worry for many of us now is that withdrawing from INF is the forerunner of Trump abandoning New START as well", Ambassador Vershbow says.

Putin said Russian Federation will start work on creating new missiles, including hypersonic ones, and told ministers not to initiate disarmament talks with Washington, accusing the USA of being slow to respond to such moves. With the US maintaining the military upper hand, China places importance on a variety of cruise and ballistic missiles capable of hitting American aircraft carriers or military bases in Guam in the western Pacific and Japan.

"We must not and will not be drawn into a costly arms race", he said.

Russia's defence ministry, in turn, accused the United States of having taken the decision to withdraw from the INF already "two years before the unfounded public accusations against Russia".

The last nuclear arms control treaty between Washington and Moscow - the New START treaty - expires in 2021 and most analysts expect it will not be extended.

Still, some experts say there are ways to move forward even in the wake of INF's demise that don't require a big new treaty - if the will is there.

Moscow An arms race appears to be under way in Europe with Russian Federation making plans to modify sea-launched cruise missiles for use on land after the United States quit a 30-year-old nuclear weapons treaty.
