Due to Russian violations and breaches, President Trump is exiting a Cold-War era treaty that eliminated ground-launched intermediate-range nuclear missiles, but would be open to making a new arrangement with both Russia and China, which is not a signatory to the deal.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov responded by saying a unilateral U.S. withdrawal would be "very dangerous" and lead to a "technical military" retaliation.
