Russia has urged the United States and its allies not to be the first to deploy short and medium range (INF) missiles. The corresponding statement was released by Andrey Belousov, Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations Office in Geneva, during the review conference of the Nuclear Weapons Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), TASS reports.
According to the Russian representative, Moscow has already unilaterally pledged not to deploy INF weapons in regions where such American-made weapons will not be deployed.
“We call on the United States and its allies to make similar commitments,” Belousov said.
The permanent representative explained that this decision is necessary “to prevent a new destructive nuclear arms race”.
Andrey Belousov also assured that Russia has no medium and short-range ground missiles in service.
Previously, Beijing asked Washington for a substantial, irreversible and verifiable reduction of its nuclear arsenal.
