If the US believes that they should have weapons that are now subject to the INF treaty, Russia will do the same, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters.
Putin recalled that in 2002 the US unilaterally withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, RIA Novosti reported.
According to him, the arguments that only the US and Russia do not produce weapons falling under the INF range are clear.
“It's true, really. Many other countries produce such weapons, while Russia and the US have limited themselves bilaterally. Now, apparently, our US partners believe that the situation has changed so much that the US should also have such weapons. We will do the same,” he noted.
