The CIMT Treaty is irreparable because of the fault of the United States, and all the negotiations on the extension of the treaty are just smokescreen, Korochenko said. We judge from the fact that Washington withdrew from the Treaty and has begun to develop medium-range land-based missiles. We should not indulge in unnecessary fantasies.
The expert believes that Russia should not harbor the hope of resuming the Guided Missile Treaty. The question now is how to prepare and implement response measures if European countries succumb to pressure from Washington and deploy new American missiles on their territory.
On March 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order suspending the implementation of the Guidance Treaty. According to the Presidential Decree, Russia suspended the implementation of the Guidance Treaty signed on 8 December 1987 until the United States amended its previous violation of the said treaty or until the treaty expired.
Earlier, the US State Department said that if Moscow provided an opportunity for accessibility verification for the security of the United States and its partners, the US would be willing to negotiate with Russia on the China Guidance Treaty. Lu Guang, spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said at a regular press conference on the 5th that China urged the US and Russia to resume compliance with the Guidance Treaty as soon as possible.
