I believe that the many years of Russian violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty demand a response by the United States. It should be strong and thoughtfully constructed in close coordination with Congress and U.S. allies. In recent weeks, the Administration has failed to meet these standards. Bringing Russia into compliance with the INF Treaty will continue to be a very difficult task, but the unilateral abrogation of this long-standing treaty will not accomplish this goal. In fact, it is simply another indication to our allies and the world community that we no longer wish to work in concert with others. All efforts should be expended to preserve both this landmark arms control treaty, which has been a bedrock of European stability and alliance security for decades, and other critical treaties that prevent an unconstrained nuclear arms race.
