The American approach to the negotiations, developed through broad consultation within NATO, required that each ISP agreement provide for: (1) equality must provide for equality both within borders and rights between the United States and the Soviet Union; (2) be strictly bilateral and therefore exclude British and French systems; (3) limited global systems; (4) do not compromise the conventional defence capability of ASAs; and (5) be verifiable effectively. The Foreign Ministry`s annual assessment of Russia`s compliance with important arms control agreements in 2018 stated that Russia had not been in contact with the FN treaty and listed the steps Washington took to resolve the dispute, including convening a meeting of the SRC and providing additional information on the violation to Moscow. Esper said THAT DOD had begun its own research on conventional and non-nuclear capabilities before the United States withdrew from the FN treaty. Although there are only five active States Parties in total, several European countries have destroyed the missiles of the FN TREATY. Germany, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic destroyed their medium-range missiles in the 1990s and Slovakia dismantled all of its medium-range missiles in October 2000, following major US missiles. On 31 May 2002, the last holder of medium-range missiles in Eastern Europe, Bulgaria, signed an agreement with the United States to destroy all its missiles under the FNI treaty. Bulgaria ended the destruction five months later with US funds. 3. Before a missile arrives in the extinguishing plant, the nuclear warhead and guidance can be removed. The contract prohibits both parties from possessing, manufacturing or testing ballistic and cruise missiles with a range of 500 to 5,000 km. The possession or manufacture of ground launchers of these missiles was also prohibited. The ban extended to nuclear and conventional warhead weapons, but did not extend to air or maritime missiles.
 Existing weapons had to be destroyed and a mutual inspection protocol was agreed.  Any party has the right to terminate the contract with a six-month notice period “if it decides that exceptional events related to the purpose of this contract have jeopardized its best interests.”  The collapse of the Cold War Nuclear Weapons Treaty points to problems for U.S.-Russian relations, European security and non-proliferation. Mr. Trump also expressed concern about Chinese missiles, which are not limited by the agreement, although it is estimated that 95% of the [PDF] are in the inF. But most of these Chinese missiles are equipped with conventional non-nuclear warheads, and the United States and Russia have more than 90 percent of the world`s nuclear reserves and far exceed China`s capabilities. The U.S. withdrawal from the NIF treaty raises questions about the fate of another important arms control agreement, New START, an agreement signed by U.S. and Russian Presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev in 2010, which limits the number of U.S. and Russian nuclear forces.
“We need to develop these weapons, unless Russia comes to us and China comes to us and they all come to us and say, “Let`s be really smart, and let`s not develop these weapons,” Trump said in October 2018. If Russia does that and China does it, and we respect the agreement, that is unacceptable. In light of the discussions between the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United States of America and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, on 14 April 1988, in Geneva and Moscow, as well as the letter of the Foreign Ministers to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of 15 April 1988, the Government of the United States of America, in an agreement concluded by the Exchange of Notes , wished that the joint agreements reached between the two governments for the implementation of the treaty signed in Washington on 8 December 1987 between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the elimination of their medium-sized missiles
