America has officially announced plans to quit the 30-year-old Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) which aims to keep nuclear, short and intermediate weapons out of Europe. A White House insider has said the move opens up a route for the US to station previously banned missiles with European allies. Mr Trump ripped up the disarmament agreement today after Moscow failed to meet Washington’s February 2 deadline to remove missiles it believes violates the deal.

The INF Treaty, signed by US President Ronald Reagan and his Soviet counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, put an end to Cold War tensions by stopping both countries from keeping short and intermediate land-based missiles in Europe.

US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, announced the decision to tear up the accord today, a day earlier than had been expected.

Last year President Trump accused President Putin of violating the pact by stationing Novator 9M729 missiles, known as SSC-8 by NATO, in banned territory giving Moscow two months to get rid of or destroy the weapons.
