Trump Says He Didn’t Discuss INF With Putin, Offers Help With Russia Wildfires
President Donald Trump says he offered U.S. help to Russian President Vladimir Putin in fighting Russia’s forest fires that have engulfed thousands of square miles of territory in Siberia and the Russian Far East – an area estimated to be the size of Belgium.
The United States pulled out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty on Friday, to develop its own new warheads after the Russians refused to destroy their new missiles, which NATO says violate the pact.
U.S. President Donald Trump is expressing optimism a new agreement can be made to replace the historic Cold War pact.
“Russia would like to do something on a nuclear treaty and that’s OK with me. They would like to do something and so would I,” Trump said in response to a question from VOA on Thursday afternoon.
