The United States risks a nuclear war if they do not renew the key arms control treaty

The United States of America has been accused by Russia of raising the risk of a nuclear war if they continue with their stand not to hold talks with the Russian government and renew the 1987 intimidate-range Nuclear Force treaty (INF). This was said by the president of the Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday during the 14th annual event where Putin discusses his leadership credential and sends messages to its foes and to its allies.

The 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty required the United States and the Soviet Union to eliminate and permanently forswear all of their nuclear and conventional ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with ranges of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. The treaty is renewed after every year and the next renewal is on 2021. If the United States do not hold talks with the Russian government and renew the INF treaty then unpredictable consequences are expected.

During the conference, Putin supported the United States of America in its move to withdraw troops out of Syria and described the American presence in Syria as illegitimate and the Islamic state had largely been defeated on the ground.

Vladimir Putin also said that the United Kingdom should not hold another referendum and asked Prime Minister Theresa may to implement the will of the people. The deadline for leaving Britain to leave the European Union is close and a lot of people are in a dilemma if they will leave or not, but Putin he thinks Britain should leave.
