SASC Chairman Inhofe on U.S. Withdrawal of INF Treaty

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, praised the administration’s action today on the INF treaty:

“It’s been 60 days since President Trump told Vladimir Putin to stop violating the INF treaty, but Russia hasn’t taken any meaningful steps to come into compliance. I’m pleased that the United States will begin the process to formally withdraw. Our NATO allies fully support this action, and continued consultation is critical. We cannot keep jeopardizing our partners, troops and infrastructure for a one-sided treaty.”

In December, Inhofe praised the President’s action to give Russia 60 days to comply with the treaty. Read his statement here.
