NATO has agreed ways to deter Russia from launching a new medium-range missile capable of a nuclear strike on Europe, the alliance said on Friday (August 2), saying its response would be measured and only involve conventional weapons. BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (FILE - AUGUST 2, 2019) (REUTERS) NATO SECRETARY-GENERAL, JENS STOLTENBERG, ARRIVING FOR NEWS CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) NATO SECRETARY-GENERAL, JENS STOLTENBERG, SAYING: "Today, the INF treaty ceases to exist. Because Russia has deployed the SSC-8 missile system. The new Russian missiles are nuclear capable, mobile and hard to detect. They can reach European cities with only minutes of warning time." STOLTENBERG DURING NEWS CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) NATO SECRETARY-GENERAL, JENS STOLTENBERG, SAYING: "Russia bears the sole responsibility for the demise of the INF treaty." STOLTENBERG SPEAKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) NATO SECRETARY-GENERAL, JENS STOLTENBERG, SAYING: "This is not a credible offer because Russia has deployed missiles for years. So, there is zero credibility in offering a moratorium on missiles that are already deployed. There are no new U.S. missiles, no new NATO missiles in Europe, but there are more and more new Russian missiles, so to offer a moratorium is without any credibility." The United States has dealt a serious blow to the international security system by leaving the INF treaty - Russia's deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Monday (August 5). MOSCOW, RUSSIA (FILE - AUGUST 5, 2019) (REUTERS) RUSSIAN DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, SERGEI RYABKOV, ARRIVING AT MEDIA BRIEFING (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) RUSSIAN DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, SERGEI RYABKOV, SAYING: "With the liquidation of the INF treaty by Washington, a serious blow was dealt to the arms control system which took dozens of years to form. Far-reaching consequences for the international security and strategic stability systems are inevitable. The American side is to be solely blamed for that. It is the U.S. who acted as grave-diggers for the treaty." MEDIA (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) RUSSIAN DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER, SERGEI RYABKOV, SAYING: "With regard to the new threats generated by the U.S.A. we will naturally take comprehensive defence steps. At the same time, as President Vladimir Putin said on February 2, Russia will not deploy ground short- and intermediate- range missiles in Europe and other regions until the U.S. missiles of a respective class appear there."
