Trump to terminate arms control treaty, Russia "violated" it

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump said he is going to terminate an arms control treaty known as the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) after he said Russia had violated it.

"We've honored the agreement, but Russia has not unfortunately honored the agreement," Trump said after a rally in Nevada.

"So we're going to terminate the agreement, so we're going to pull out." The U.S. believes Russia is developing a ground-launched system in breach of a Cold War treaty, INF, that could allow Moscow to launch a nuclear strike on Europe at short notice.

Russia has consistently denied any such violation.

The 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty bans medium-range missiles capable of hitting Europe or Alaska and ended a Cold War-era crisis, when the Soviet Union installed nearly 400 nuclear warheads pointed at western Europe.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Moscow had developed a missile known as Novator 9M729, which analysts say is similar to Russian short-range, sea-launched missiles but can fly between 500 km to 5,500 km (310-3,420 miles).
