the US withdrawal from the Treaty on open skies — intentional American authorities for the erosion of strategic stability and security in the world. This opinion was expressed by the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova in the program “Sunday night with Vladimir Solovyov”, commenting on Washington’s decision to leave the open skies Treaty.
the Diplomat recalled that the Treaty on open skies was signed in 1992. Today is 33 States. Participating countries of the agreement do observation flights as a measure of collective security. “In accordance with the agreed quotas, and regulations,” she said.
“for Many years, no one had any global problems with the document. All the issues were solved in the framework of the special Commission,” continued Zakharova.
According to the diplomat, the US has once again worked in the “traditional scheme” using public campaign against Russia. “All the troubles of the United States to blame Moscow” — ironically it.
the American government systematically went from the ABM Treaty, the Treaty on intermediate and short range, the diplomat said. “Strategic stability and all the documents that supported it, asked the legal framework activities and the actions of States, they are systematically broken U.S. ABM Treaty (2002), the Treaty on intermediate and short range, a statement regarding the refusal to ratify treaties on nuclear tests, she said. And now the Treaty on open skies”. “Left SNV-3, but this is the last that remains”, — said official representative of Russian foreign Ministry.
