Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday his country would start developing intermediate-range nuclear missiles if the United States leaves a key arms agreement and begins developing the weapons as well.
Putin told Russia news agencies that a U.S. withdrawal from the treaty would mean Washington has concluded it “has to have these weapons” and that Moscow “will do the same.”
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told NATO ministers in Brussels Tuesday it will begin the six-month process of withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 60 days if Russia does not regain compliance with the treaty.
