Save US-Russia nuclear treaty, EU urges
EU DIPLOMATIC chief Federica Mogherini on Wednesday urged Russia and the US to save a Cold War arms control treaty after Washington issued a 60-day ultimatum to Moscow. She pleaded for the treaty to be saved, warning that Europe did not want to become a battlefield for global powers once again, as it had been during the Cold War. “The
INF has guaranteed peace and security in European territory for 30 years now,” Mogherini said as she arrived for talks with Nato foreign ministers. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday warned Russia that if it did not dismantle its 9M279 mobile groundlaunched missile system, Washington would no longer be bound by the treaty.
