Trump: We may pull out of Open Skies Treaty

United States President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he may reach an arms deal with Russia, but that the US will likely first have to pull out of the Open Skies Treaty to force Russia to enter talks on the deal.

He criticized Moscow, saying they did not adhere to the international agreement "properly." Trump went on to say that a new arms deal could also include China.

Earlier, reports said that Trump was prepared to take the US out of the Open Skies Treaty which came into force in 2002. Other than the New START it is the only arms treaty between the US and Russia.
