The United States has formally withdrawn from a landmark 1987 nuclear missile pact with Russia after determining that Moscow was violating the treaty.
Washington signalled that it would pull out of the arms control treaty six months ago unless Moscow stuck to the accord, Reuters reported.
Russia called the move a ploy to exit a pact that the United States wanted to leave anyway in order to develop new missiles.
President Donald Trump told reporters he would like to seal a new arms deal with Russia reducing all nuclear forces, and possibly with China as well.
