Russia vows to provide timely ‘reply’ to dangers posed by Washington’s INF exit

Amman, Moscow will give a timely military and technical response, if risks arise for its security due to the US pullout from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said on Thursday.

The United States has withdrawn from the INF Treaty proceeding from the interests of achieving geopolitical superiority in all the theaters of military operations and “has actually forced its allies to join its unfounded version why such a decision was made,” the high-ranking Russian diplomat said.

“Our position on the INF remains perfectly clear: we believe that the treaty’s regime was a cornerstone of European security,” Grushko said.

“If a threat arises for Russia, we will give a military and technical response to it. Already now, we will take all necessary efforts to make this response timely with regard to developing such capabilities,” the senior Russian diplomat stressed.
