Is the USA entering a new arms race with Russian Federation?

However, since Romania hosts the USA missile-defense system on its territory, "it can not be overlooked by the Russian defense planning", Kuzmin said in response to an RFE/RL reporter's question.

Valery Kuzmin, Russia's envoy to Romania, told a news conference in Bucharest on February 7 that Moscow was not planning any "hostile or unfriendly actions" toward Romania.

Trump said in his State of the Union address on Tuesday that the U.S. may be open to negotiating another agreement to replace the 1987 IntermediateRange Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, one that could include China as well as Russian Federation.


U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced last week that the United States is withdrawing from the INF Treaty, citing Russia's violation of the deal, a claim that has been repeatedly denied by Moscow.

"As we mentioned with the suspension announcement and intent to withdraw, now the Department of Defense will be able to conduct those research and development activities that they hadn't because we'd been complying".

As BelTA reported earlier, on 2 February Washington confirmed the U.S. withdrawal from the INF Treaty.

President Trump gave notice of withdrawal from the 1987 treaty abolishing intermediate-range ground-based nuclear missiles, known as INF.

Russian Federation again slammed the United States on Thursday, putting forth that the "United States took no action to stop violating own obligations under the INF Treaty", reports Sputnik. Russian Federation is going to retaliate against the United States. The treaty remained in place after the Soviet Union's collapse, but the Trump administration and NATO have argued that Moscow has violated the agreement's terms.
