Donald Trump: we exit the missile deal with Russia

The President of the United States confirmed the withdrawal of the United States from the Treaty on Medium and Small-Range Missiles.

The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, said last Saturday that Washington intends to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Short-Range Missiles. According to the American president, the current treaty has long been violated by Russia and the PRC, and therefore, it does not satisfy the national interests of the United States.

“We will withdraw from the agreement, and then we will develop weapons. They have been violating the agreement for many years. I don’t know why President Obama did not negotiate or did not withdraw from the treaty. ”, - said the American leader.

At the same time, Donald Trump said that if Russia and China agree to conclude a new treaty, Washington will not develop new weapons, but experts suggest that the new treaty will provide unequal conditions.

According to experts, the main reason for which Donald Trump decided to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Medium and Short Range Missiles is the appearance of hypersonic weapons in Russia and China, in particular, the Russian Dagger and Avangard complexes, and also rocket "Sarmat".

It is reported that not everyone in Washington shares the proposal of the American president, in connection with which, Donald Trump may encounter difficulties in withdrawing the United States from this treaty. This is due primarily to the fact that in such a case, Russia will begin to actively develop new types of weapons, and in this case, the threat to the US national interests will be immeasurably greater.
