Another nuclear pact with US in trouble: Russia

Russian Federation welcomed an offer by US President Donald Trump to renegotiate a landmark nuclear missile pact after he quit the agreement, while cautioning that it's received no specific proposals yet. "We will strengthen the Armed Forces and enhance the defense capacity, the statehood, the union of Belarus and Russian Federation; we should do all this", Andrei Ravkov noted.

The head of Pentagon policy John Rood said that because the U.S. has been in full compliance with the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty it has no plans to create or deploy an intermediate range missile system.

"Under my administration, we will never apologize for advancing America's interests", Trump told USA lawmakers assembled in the House chamber. "That's not what we're thinking about right now", he said.

Emery's side have lost their past three away games in the Premier League including a 3-1 loss at Manchester City last weekend. In terms of injury updates, Emery confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ainsley-Maitland Niles could feature.

While pointing the finger at Russia, US officials have voiced concern that the 1987 treaty does not constrain China, whose rapidly growing military relies on medium-range missiles as a core part of its defense strategy.

Rood said that United States officials will discuss their defence options with allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defence ministers meeting later this month in Brussels in order to see "how we adapt our defence posture in response to that new reality".

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said earlier Tuesday that Putin had approved plans for new missiles. They have also countered with our systems that are in violation. "The arrival time of Tomahawk missiles will be about an hour, while intermediate-range ballistic missiles will be able to reach Moscow in three to four minutes", Yesin said.

"I would advocate - even if it is going to take a very long period of time, even if it may be a very, sometimes, complex and disappointing, from time to time, process - it would be good to try to find a way forward on a multilateral arms control agreement in this area", Rinkevics told AFP.

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.
