UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres hopes that the US and Russia will come to accords in settling recently emerged disputes on the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.
Farhan Haq, a spokesman for the UN chief, said yesterday that the Secretary-General is aware of the US comments regarding the INF Treaty and he still hopes that the two countries will be able to solve the disagreements.
On Saturday, US President Donald Trump said that Washington would withdraw from the INF Treaty. The Treaty eliminated operational and non-operational medium range and shorter range, ground-launched missiles.
The Soviet Union eliminated 1,846 missiles, and the United States, 846.
