The US plans of withdrawal from the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty) are likely to be discussed at the upcoming meeting of the Council Russia-NATO, said the Director of the European cooperation Department of Russian foreign Ministry Andrey Kelin.

«I think that without the hottest topic now — the topic announced the upcoming withdrawal of the United States (the INF Treaty), it most likely will not do,» said Kelin reporters at the site of the discussion club «Valdai».

Earlier, the President of the United States Donald trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Treaty on intermediate-range and shorter-range. Trump said that America will increase its nuclear capability as long as the others «comes to her senses», then Washington will be ready to stop this process and proceed to arms reduction. He explained that this message is addressed primarily to China and Russia.
