FOREIGN AFFAIRS – RUSSIA AND THE INF TREATY – 22 January 2019

Dr Julian Lewis: Will Ministers use the United Nations as a forum where the United States can expose the Russian violation of the intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty so that if America does withdraw, responsibility will lie where it should?

[The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Mr Jeremy Hunt): We are absolutely sure that Russia has been violating the terms of the INF treaty and that the way forward in this is to get back to compliance because it is vital for Europe’s security, but that starts with Russia recognising what it has done wrong.]
