Trump Proposes New Nuclear Missile Treaty With Potential To Include India

According to him, on 2 February Belarus received an official notification from the United States about the country's withdrawal from the INF Treaty in a six months' time.

Russian media also floated the possibility of sailing an underwater nuclear doomsday device to the US's coast. They see the rise of a revanchist Russian Federation and heightened tensions in Asia due in part to an increasingly assertive China making for a more perilous world - and one that would be prone to a new arms race, only this time not limited to the two nuclear superpowers.

NATO said that if Moscow failed to destroy all new missile systems that Washington insists violate the treaty, "Russia will bear sole responsibility for the end of the treaty".

Russia's defence minister Sergei Shoigu on Tuesday said the country must develop new types of missile systems in the next two years after Washington and Moscow ripped up a key arms control treaty.

"Today, more than ever, it is important to make every effort on both sides of the Atlantic to restore and strengthen confidence-building measures in order to prevent the deployment of medium and shorter-range missiles in Europe".

On Tuesday, defence minister Sergei Shoigu issued a deadline to top brass to create a long-range, land-based hypersonic missile as well as modify the air-and-sea-based Kalibr cruise missile, which he said had "recommended itself well in Syria".

China's missile forces are a pillar of its national security strategy aimed at removing the influence of USA forces in the Asia-Pacific region.

"This is Russia's final opportunity to return to compliance", Wood said.

European leaders in particular are anxious about their continent becoming once again the center of heightened US-Russia tensions and the staging ground for an arms buildup between the two.

A BBC review of Russian newspapers, some state-owned and all adhering to state narratives or censored by the Kremlin, revealed some truly apocalyptic ideas. Kyl, with Morrison's behind-the-scenes assistance, successfully extracted a ransom of almost $100 billion from Obama in the form of promises for nuclear weapons "modernization" in exchange for a sufficient number of Senate Republicans' advice and consent in favor of New START. It said Russian Federation was violating the treaty's terms and had six months to become compliant.

Axel Goethals, CEO of Brussels-based European Institute for Asian Studies, said it is clear that the U.S., in withdrawing from this treaty, wants to have its hands more free to deal with the new multilateral world order.

Rest in peace Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Agreement!

Finally, Russian media turned to what's quickly becoming a propaganda crutch in communicating Moscow's might: The Doomsday device.

Since they announced the weapon, they've already used it to threaten Europe. Instead of using this opportunity to save the INF Treaty, the Russian government continued its denials and disinformation.

"The character and the timing of the works provide an irrefutable proof that the USA administration had made a decision to pull out of the INF treaty years before making unfounded claims of Russian violations", it said. We hope Russian Federation will take that step.
