High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini stressed the need to preserve the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). This was reported in a statement, published on the Council of Europe website.

Mogherini has noted that the EU is concerned about the decision of the Russian Federation to suspend the fulfillment of its obligations under the missile treaty.

"The viability of the agreement on arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation requires its full implementation. We urge Moscow to find an effective solution due to concerns about the development of the 9M729 missile," the statement said.

We recall, July 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on the suspension of the missile agreement execution.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was signed on December 8, 1987, by Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

If the agreement is broken, both Moscow and Washington will again have the opportunity to deploy such weapons, build up nuclear potential and frighten the whole world with its use.

Donald Trump on October 21, 2018, announced his intention to withdraw from the treaty, which was signed 30 years ago.

After some time, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that on February 2, the United States would suspend participation in the INF Treaty with Russia.

Putin signed a decree suspending the participation of the Russian Federation in the INF Treaty on March 4.
