The US will endanger the security of Europe, if you take the decision to withdraw from the INF Treaty, said the President of France Emmanuel macron.

Earlier, the President of the United States Donald trump announced that Washington would withdraw from the Treaty on intermediate-range and shorter-range. According to him, 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.

«When I see President trump said a few weeks ago about the release of the important agreements on disarmament (Treaty on intermediate-range and shorter-range)… Who will be the main victim of (this decision)? Europe and its security,» macron said in an interview with radio station Europe 1.
