If the treaties in arms limitation are terminated, there is “nothing left but an arms race,” as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said at the press conference with Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, the Kremlin’s press office reported.

“We are concerned about the termination of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Now, it is about the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Then, nothing is clear about the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, – ed.),” the message says.

“If all this is dismantled, nothing will remain in the area of arms race limit. Then, in my opinion, the situation will be rather dangerous. There is nothing left, but an arms race,” Putin said.

Putin warned the European states, which agree to deploy American missiles on their territories.

“If they (missiles, - ed.) are located in Europe, then, obviously, we will have to give a reflecting response, and the European countries, which agree with this, should understand that they put their own territories under threat of a possible retaliatory strike. In general, I don’t understand, is there a need to get Europe in a state of such a high level of danger,” Russia’s President said.
