Earlier,Trump, speaking to reporters, saidthe United States is withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty because Russia has violated it and did not provide a report.

Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years, Trump said after a rally in Elko, Nevada. Were not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and do weapons and were notallowedto. Were the ones that have stayed in the agreement and wevehonoredthe agreement but Russia has not unfortunatelyhonoredthe agreement so were going to terminate the agreement, were going to pull out, the US president noted.
The agreement has constrained the U.S. from developing new weapons, but America will begin developing them unless Russia and China agree not to possess or develop the weapons, Trump said. China is not currently a party to the pact.

The Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles was signed in 1987 by General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Reagan.
The agreement prohibits the partiesfrom manufacturing ground-based ballistic and cruise nuclear missiles with a range from 500 to 5,500 km, as well as their testing and deployment.
