'Fundamental differences' remain on INF - Russian official

Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control Vladimir Ermakov said that, while attending a working meeting with United States officials on nuclear disarmament was "not useless," the two sides still disagree on a number of issues.

"During the working meetings at the State Department, the topic of the INF Treaty was indeed touched upon, but fundamental differences in our views on the causes and nature of the crisis around this Treaty remain. It is difficult to return to a substantive discussion on how to resolve the counterclaims in the context of the INF," Ermakov said, according to Sputnik.

Russian President Vladimir Putin officially suspended the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) between Russia and the US.
