U.S. offers Russia to negotiaite over arms control issue
Washington offers Moscow to have talks on the issue of arms control. The U.S. initiative is somewhat explained by the ongoing development of Novator (9M729), the Russia-made supersonic missile, which is considered to breach the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.
According to Reuters, White House official told the press that the negotiation would 'almost certainly would include a dispute over a Cold War-era treaty limiting intermediate-range missiles'. Under Secretary of State Andrea Thompson also said that 'the United States has presented Russia with a proposal for a “verifiable” test of the missile’s range', a step that the Kremlin did not accept.
9M729 (NATO-class SSC-8) is the missile; experts often point out that by developing this weapon, Russia violates the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles. Moscow denies the charges. This is a dispute in which experts point out contradictions and inconsistencies between the text of the treaty and the weapons arsenal with its technical capabilities.
