US pulls out of Reagan-era arms treaty, saying Russia ‘made no efforts’ to comply | Fox News

A historic arms control treated signed between President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev three decades was scrapped after President Trump decided to withdraw on Friday.

The move to scrap the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty comes amid the administration’s assessment that Russia was in “material breach of the treaty” and made no effort to “come back into compliance” with the agreement, a senior White House official said.
