Russia fulfills all the agreements with the U.S. in missile and nuclear arms, Washington is trying to rewrite them, said the Director of the Department for nonproliferation and arms control Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Vladimir Ermakov.

According to him, the US has a weak position in the matter of implementation of international agreements. «Their weakness in fact is that they feel they lose their positions. Under the former they also developed understandings of their influence in the world decreases. It is an objective process of economic and political development of countries in the world,» said Yermakov at the press conference in MIA «Russia today».

According to him, the U.S. is losing its weight on the background of the rise of other States. «Why the US is trying to rewrite the previous agreement. This is the main problem. The United States continues to regard Russia as a threat to its global domination. Here’s the thing,» — said Ermakov.

At the same time, he stressed that Russia complies with the agreement. «With regard to nuclear weapons and missiles. We occupy a consistent position, we follow all the agreements that we have with US. Other arrangements at all. The US is trying to rewrite these agreements,» — said the diplomat.
