MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. Russia remains committed to its international obligations, including under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
- Moscow sees deployment of US interceptor missiles in Romania as INF treaty violation
- Kremlin: Russia committed to INF Treaty but has claims to US on treaty fulfillment
- Russia and US remain divided over global security, including INF treaty — Lavrov
- US continues to insist that Russia violates INF Treaty
"No one has officially accused Russia of violating the INF," the spokesman said.
"Russia remained and remains committed to its international obligations, including under the treaty you mentioned," Peskov told journalists.
The Kremlin spokesman thus commented on an article in The New York Times, which cited sources in the US administration to claim that Russia had violated the treaty.
"You mentioned some information completely depersonalized," the Kremlin spokesman said.
The New York Times reported that Russia had alleged deployed a fully combat-capable unit of ground-based "surface-to-surface" cruise missiles that American officials said violated the landmark arms control treaty.
