Russia has informed the United States of an indefinite postponement of negotiations on strategic stability within the framework of the Treaty on the Reduction and Limitation of Nuclear Arms (NPT-3). This was reported by a representative of the US State Department in a comment to CNN.
"The United States and the Russian Federation were scheduled to hold a meeting of the Bilateral Advisory Commission on the SNO-3 treaty in Cairo to discuss the implementation of the treaty on Tuesday, November 29. The Russian side informed the United States that Russia had unilaterally postponed the meeting and said it would propose new dates ", the department noted.
The representative of the State Department added that the US is ready to postpone the meeting to the nearest possible date, since "resumption of inspections is a priority to support the treaty as a tool of stability."
The Russian side did not name the reasons for the postponement of the bilateral consultations.
