Trump wants to discuss 'arms race' with Russia China

A statement released by the NATO foreign ministers said: "Allies have emphasized that the situation whereby the United States and other parties fully abide by the treaty and Russian Federation does not, is not sustainable".

Washington officials said Russia's new missile system violated the nuclear arms agreement.

"The six-month period will begin to run 60 days from now", Pompeo said.

Trump's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said the gathering was cancelled "because the Russians behaved in a way that is deeply inconsistent with worldwide law".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said after the decision that the United States would suspend its treaty obligations in 60 days over the alleged violations.

According to the President of the United States Donald trump in relations between the U.S. and China achieved significant progress thanks to his meeting with President of China XI Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina.

In a joint statement issued earlier in the day, the NATO foreign ministers said Russian Federation had "developed and fielded a missile system, the 9M729, which violates the INF Treaty and poses significant risks to Euro-Atlantic security".

The United States warned Russian Federation on Tuesday it will withdraw from a major cold war treaty limiting mid-range nuclear arms if Moscow does not dismantle missiles that Washington says breach it within 60 days.

NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gesture as they speak before posing for a family photo during the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation foreign ministers' meeting at the Alliance's headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, December 4, 2018.

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova rejected accusations of noncompliance: "Russia strictly complies with the conditions of the treaty and the United States side is aware of that".

During a conference in the Russian city of Sochi on Tuesday, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said that Russia is preparing for an arms race.

"We need to create a coordinated response to the actions of Russia", Klimkin said, adding that he raised "a set of practical steps with a number of proposals" at the meeting as to how NATO, Ukraine and Georgia might do that together.

President Trump and National Security Adviser John Bolton had previously suggested the US would withdraw from the treaty, but Pompeo's announcement Tuesday officially starts the clock.

According to a leaked memo published by the Washington Post, the national security adviser, John Bolton, has ordered the Pentagon to "develop and deploy ground-launched missiles at the earliest possible date".
