Russia asks European states to influence US for sake of preserving INF Treaty

The European countries must influence the United States for the sake of preserving the Intermediate Nuclear Force Treaty, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference following a meeting of the OSCE foreign ministers on Friday.

He said Russia believes that the US is intending to destroy the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START-3) by withdrawing from the INF Treaty. He said his counterparts, including Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, have expressed concern over this situation.
