ABSTRACT

U.S. Withdrawal from the INF Treaty [Updated February 1, 2019]   [open pdf - 97KB]

"The United States will suspend its obligations under the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and submit its formal notice of withdrawal to Russia on February 2, 2019. President Donald Trump first announced the U.S. withdrawal on October 20, 2018, and stated on February 1, 2019, that the United States was taking this step because Russia was violating the treaty by 'developing and fielding a prohibited missile system that poses a direct threat to our allies and troops abroad."
