BEIJING, Oct. 12, according to Euronet, quoting Europa News Agency, Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at the CIS Council of Heads of State on November 11, pointed out that the United States was resourceful and came up with an excuse for withdrawing from the Guidance Treaty, which was related to their Asian policy.

Reportedly, during Putins meeting, the Americans were more sophisticated in their decision and came up with excuses. Although this has nothing to do with Russia, it has something to do with their Asian policy.
Putin emphasized that we now see the real situation of these medium-range and short-range missiles. Russia has always been accused of violating certain agreements, but three months after the U.S. withdrawal from the treaty, the U.S. test-fired medium-range missiles again. It will take years to produce similar products within three months, but the United States has done so.
Putin pointed out that this was very bad. Reported that he was referring to the Pentagon spokesman has announced plans to deploy missiles in Asia, and directly publicly said that talks are being held with Japan and South Korea.
The China Guidance Treaty is called the Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union on the Elimination of Medium-Range Missiles and Short-Range Missiles between the two countries. In recent years, the United States and Russia have repeatedly accused each other of violating the Treaty. Moscow said the Russian side had been faithfully implementing the treaty, and that the US accusations were groundless. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out that Russia also has serious doubts about the implementation of the Treaty by the United States.
The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty signed by Russia and the United States in 2010 is the only existing arms control treaty between the two countries, which will expire in 2021. Bolton, former US Presidents National Security Assistant, has said that the United States has not yet decided whether to extend the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, but there is little possibility of such an extension. Russia has repeatedly expressed its willingness to engage in dialogue on the extension of the Treaty.
Putin said the future of the new START treaty is uncertain.
