NATO Urges Russia to Uphold Nuclear Deal After U.S. Threatens Exit

NATO Urges Russia to Uphold Nuclear Deal After U.S. Threatens ExitNATO foreign ministers said Russia is jeopardizing the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty by deploying ground-launched missiles that fall within the banned range of 500 kilometers (311 miles) to 5,500 kilometers. U.S. President Donald Trump pledged in October to abandon the 31-year-old INF accord as a result of alleged Russian violations. “We call on Russia to return urgently to full and verifiable compliance,” the NATO foreign ministers said in a statement released on Tuesday in Brussels.
