MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. There has been no progress in implementing the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF)Treaty with the United States, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters on Tuesday, answering a question from a TASS correspondent on whether contacts with the American side on the issue were planned.
"In the US Department of State, the INF issues are overseen by Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Rose Gottemoeller," he said. "We are in constant contact with her. However, there is no progress indeed in this area."
Ryabkov added the INF Treaty was not discussed during the recent visit to Moscow by US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. "She does not deal with the issue, that’s not her competence," he said.
