U.S. Open to Russia Nuclear Treaty and Warns Turkey on Arms

U.S. Open to Russia Nuclear Treaty and Warns Turkey on Arms

The pair will meet at the Munich Security Conference, which starts on Friday, as NATO tries to persuade Moscow to abandon a new missile system the alliance says breaches the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

If Turkey does purchase Russian arms, it could put at risk the types of defenses other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies could have in the country, affect the inter-operability of defense systems and violate security and intelligence among alliance members, Hutchison said.

Mr Stoltenberg reiterated Russian Federation has breached the treaty multiple times, saying: "All European allies agree with the United States because Russian Federation has violated the treaty for several years".

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies chose to deploy USA cruise and Pershing 2 ballistic missiles in Europe in 1983 as negotiations with Moscow faltered over its stationing of SS-20 missiles in eastern Europe.

NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg gestures during a news conference at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters in Brussels, Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019.

The U.S. began the six-month process of withdrawing from the treaty on February 2, claiming Russia's missile system violates the treaty's range requirements.

I'm just happy to be working with Maurizio again at a big club like Chelsea which has so much history and wonderful team-mates. The Dutch side have tasted defeat in two out of their last three games, including a 6-2 thumping away to rivals Feyenoord.

Stoltenberg said that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has "a wide range of options, conventional and other options", but he declined to list them, warning that any speculation "would just add to the uncertainty".

"I mean that it's not just about purely military issues, but also about economic issues, about political issues".

"They are part of a broader picture where we have seen Russian Federation investing heavily in modern military capabilities over a long time, including new nuclear capabilities", he said.

"Moscow continues to develop and deploy several battalions of the SSC-8 missile", Mr Stoltenberg said.

While Washington and Moscow are at odds over the INF, the treaty does nothing to constrain China, whose fast-growing military depends on medium-range missiles as a key aspect of its defense strategy.

Stoltenberg ruled out deploying new nuclear land-based weapon systems in Europe, but added their were other choices, including "conventional and other options".
