Belousov: The problem of the collapse of the INF Treaty was not reflected in the final report of the conference of the Day, the deputy head of the Russian delegation, Andrei Belousov, pointed out the lack of the final document of the conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), which was not adopted by the participants.
This is reported by TASS.
According to the diplomat, the draft final document of the conference does not reflect the problem of the collapse of the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF).
“It could reflect, at least, the general reaction of the States parties to the Treaty to those events and factors that have had a serious impact on all three pillars of the Treaty over the past review cycle. And a lot of such things have happened over the past seven years,” Belousov stressed.
Earlier, the chairman of the NPT conference Gustavo Zlauvinen said that its participants did not agree on the final document because they could not reach consensus on the substantive part. Consensus was reached on the procedural part setting the dates for the next NPT conference in 2026 and preparations for it.
