The end of the INF treaty comes amid rising doubts about whether the two countries will extend the START agreement on long-range nuclear weapons scheduled to expire in 2021; Trump says he has been discussing a new plan to reduce nuclear weapons with Beijing and Moscow. reports citing Ynetnews that sith the scrapping of a landmark arms control agreement Friday, the U.S. announced plans to test a new missile amid growing concerns about emerging threats and new weapons.

The treaty was also criticized because it did not cover China or missile technology that did not exist a generation ago.

"And I will tell you China was very, very excited about talking about it and so was Russia," Trump told reporters. "So I think we'll have a deal at some point."

The Trump administration, which gave its six-month notice on Feb. 2 of its pending withdrawal from the INF, had repeatedly said Russia was violating its provisions, an accusation President Barack Obama made as well.

"The United States will not remain party to a treaty that is deliberately violated by Russia," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in announcing the formal withdrawal, calling a Russian missile system prohibited under the agreement a "direct threat to the United States and our allies.

Thomas Countryman said that the Trump administration is engaged in a "dangerous fantasy" by thinking Russia needs the New START treaty more than the United States does.
