Russia’s withdrawal process from the European Conventional Forces Treaty (CFE) has been completed. The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that attempts to ensure military security in Europe by ignoring the country’s interests will not lead to good results.
In the written statement made by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it was stated that Russia’s withdrawal process from the European Conventional Forces Treaty (CFE) has been completed.
In the statement, it was pointed out that other agreements related to this treaty had also expired, and it was emphasized that Russia suspended the treaty in 2007 due to the “destructive position of the USA and its allies”. The statement noted the following:
“IT DOES NOT LEAD TO GOOD RESULTS”
“Attempts to ensure military security in Europe without taking into account Russia’s interests will not lead to good results. Attempts to adhere to old agreements that are not suitable for new conditions are also doomed to failure and may lead to the collapse of cooperation mechanisms in the field of arms control. Authorities of NATO members and countries under the influence of the alliance have shown that they do not have the capacity to negotiate. “At this stage, it is not possible to make any agreement with them in the field of arms control.”
IT WAS SIGNED IN PARIS
The CFE, which imposes restrictions on the conventional forces of the parties, was signed in Paris in 1990 between NATO and the Warsaw Pact countries, including the Soviet Union.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to terminate the CFE on May 29. (AA)
