Foreign media said Russian President Vladimir Putin said October 25 that Russia plans to deploy the worlds invincible new military weapons.
Prior to Putins announcement, US President Trump announced his intention to withdraw from the 1987 China Direction Treaty, according to the Associated Press on October 25.
Putin denied any violation of the treaty and accused Washington of violating the treaty. Russia does not threaten anyone and strictly abides by its obligations in the field of international security and arms control, he reiterated in meetings with senior military and law enforcement officials.
At the same time, Putin said that Russias arsenal will be updated to ensure that it is able to withstand potential threats. He said Russias new weapons are much better than foreign designs and are unmatched. He spoke on the occasion of NATOs largest military exercise since the end of the cold war in Norway.
According to the Russian news agency reported on October 25, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov 25 in the Russia-24 channel on the program, Moscow believes that the United States will soon formally announce the withdrawal of the China Direction Treaty.
From a series of talks in Moscow, including President Putins talks with Bolton, we can see that this decision has been made, but whether it will be officially announced soon or in another month and a half, he said.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zaharova said at a press conference: This policy and this strategy have been implemented for a long time. I dont think it changed during Boltons visit. The purpose of his visit is not to change it.
Now we have to warn Washington in the most serious way, Zaha Lo Va said. If the United States breaks the contract, Russia will be forced to respond. She also said: the statement of the president of the United States is deeply regrettable and worrying. This is probably one of the most dangerous mistakes in Washingtons recent series of withdrawals from international agreements and institutions.
In addition, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia would not use consumptive means to deal with the withdrawal of the United States from the CISG as it did in the Soviet era, according to a report on October 25 by Russian Networks.
He said: we will never use consumption means to do so, which will mean the emphasis on the old Soviet Union. At that time, the Soviet Union devoted itself to the serious consumption of its economic and financial resources.
Tass news agency also reported on October 25 that Russia submitted a draft resolution to the United Nations General Assembly in support of the retention of the Midcourse Treaty. The draft pointed out that the contracting parties should initiate consultations on the reservation agreement, and breach of contract acts to threaten international security.
The draft resolution has been submitted to United Nations delegations and the Secretariat and is now being tried to submit it to the First Committee of the General Assembly (dealing with disarmament and international security issues).
NATOs European member states on October 25 called on the United States not to withdraw from a nuclear arms control treaty, but to strive to get Russia to abide by it, hoping to avoid NATOs splitting up with Moscow, Reuters reported on October 25.
Reported that at a closed-door meeting between NATO and the Pentagon, the State Department and the National Security Council, U.S. officials briefed NATO delegates on President Trumps decision to withdraw from the Midcourse Treaty. The treaty has lifted the threat of land-based nuclear missiles for Europe.
Germany and other European allies have called on Washington to make a last-ditch effort to persuade the Kremlin to stop defaulting.
A NATO diplomat said: the Allies hope to make the final effort to avoid the withdrawal of the us from the treaty. Another diplomat said: No one denies that Russia has violated the treaty, but withdrawing from the treaty may give Moscow an excuse to accuse us of tearing up this historic agreement. NATOs European allies believe that the China-Navigation Treaty (NATO) plays a vital role in arms control. Although Moscows development of new weapons violates the treaty, they are concerned that the failure of the treaty may lead to a new arms race and lead to the deployment of a new generation of U.S. nuclear missiles to the European continent. Diplomats say U.S. officials acknowledge that the formal withdrawal from the treaty could be postponed until a meeting between Putin and Trump in Paris next month, 11. Washington has time to negotiate with Moscow before formally withdrawing from the treaty, which takes six months to notify. This article source: Reference News Net editor: Ma Chao _NBJ9865
