Russia: No Progress in Resolving Nuclear Arms Pact Dispute

Tuesday, 15 January 2019 11:38 AM

MOSCOW (AP) — A top Russian diplomat says consultations with his American counterpart made no progress in resolving the United States' intention to withdraw from a nuclear arms treaty.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov met Tuesday in Geneva with U.S. Undersecretary of State Andrea Thompson about the dispute over the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

The 1987 treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union bans production, testing and deployment of land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with a range of 500-5500 kilometers (310-3140 miles). President Donald Trump in October said the U.S. would abandon the treaty because of alleged Russian violations.

"On the whole, we are forced to state that there is no progress. The US position is frozen in its uncompromising and peremptory demands," Ryabkov said, state news agency Tass reported.
