NATO blames Russia for failing to comply with new START Treaty

AFP/KENZO TRIBOUILLARD

 The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) believes that Russia has not fulfilled the terms of the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (new START) and urges Moscow to resume inspections of its nuclear arsenals, NATO’s press office said in a statement on Friday, TASS reports. 

"…We note with concern that Russia has failed to comply with legally-binding obligations under the New START Treaty," the statement reads.

"Russia’s refusal to convene a session of the Bilateral Consultative Commission (BCC) within the treaty-established timeframe, and to facilitate US inspection activities on its territory since August 2022 prevents the United States from exercising important rights under the Treaty, and undermines the United States’ ability to adequately verify Russian compliance with the Treaty’s central limits," according to the statement.

"Russia’s refusal to convene a session of the Bilateral Consultative Commission (BCC) within the treaty-established timeframe, and to facilitate U.S. inspection activities on its territory since August 2022 prevents the United States from exercising important rights under the Treaty… We call on Russia to fulfill its obligations under the Treaty by facilitating New START inspections on Russian territory, and by returning to participation in the Treaty’s implementation body, the BCC," NATO’s statement added.
