US National Security Advisor John Bolton will visit Moscow next week for talks, which may include informing Russian officials that the United States plans to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles. This is reported by Reuters.

"Bolton will discuss other important topics with Russian officials, including North Korea, Ukraine and Syria, as well as the 1987 treaty between the United States and the former Soviet Union," the report said.

Earlier, Trump, speaking to reporters, said the United States is withdrawing from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF), 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. “And we’re not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we’re not allowed to,’ Trump claimed. 
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 parties to manufacture ground-based ballistic and cruise nuclear missiles with a range from 500 to 5,500 km, as well as their testing and deployment.
