The USA urged Russia to refuse rocket 9M729 or to modify it — Rambler News Service


The USA urges Russia to refuse cruise missile 9M729 and its launchers or to modify a system so that the missile range did not violate the term of the contract about elimination of intermediate-range and short-range missiles (INF Treaty). Said it the Deputy Secretary of State of the USA for arms control and the international security Andrea Thompson, Reuters reports. "Or you will get rid of a system and the launcher, or change a system so that it did not exceed range" — the agency cites words Thompson. As notes the agency, the USA and their allies in Europe states that the missile range 9M729 breaks the ban on cruise and ballistic rockets of land basing established by the contract with radius from 500 km to 5.5 thousand km. Earlier the U.S. President Donald Trump several times said that Washington intends to leave unilaterally the INF Treaty. The contract was signed between the USA and the USSR in 1987. Later, on December 4, the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Washington will cease to observe provisions of the contract in case Russia "does not return to its execution", Washington Examiner told. He conferred responsibility "for agreement crash" on Moscow and urged Russia to recognize already perfect violations.
