US Officially Withdraws From Cold War Era Nuclear Treaty.

The United States announced their formal withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty on August 2.

The treaty with Russia, which had been in place since the Cold War era, limited the development of ground-based missiles that have a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers.

.

According to Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, the USA’s withdrawal is due to Russia’s continued refusal to comply with the treaty.

Russia is solely responsible for the treaty's demise…Russia failed to return to full and verified compliance through the destruction of its noncompliant missile system, Mike Pompeo, via CNN.

Now, the only nuclear arms agreement between the USA and Russia is the New START Treaty, which limits the number of strategic nuclear missile launchers allowed.

The US is expected to test a new, non-nuclear missile within the next few weeks.

The Pentagon revealed in March that the missile could be ready for deployment as early as 2020.
