the crash on a popular coastal route. i'm sorry so much going to thank you for joining us u.s. national security adviser john bolton is in moscow today for what could be a tough talks on arms control that's after washington announced it would withdraw from a nuclear arms agreement with russia u.s. president donald trump accused russia of violating a thirty year old treaty on intermediate range missiles and threaten a fresh arms race with moscow. this is what the drama is about medium range nuclear ballistic missiles that have been on a self-imposed by the u.s. and russia since the end of the one nine hundred eighty s. that may be about to change u.s. authorities believe russia may have developed weapon systems like these in breach of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. we're not going to let them
3:02 pm
violate a nuclear agreement go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to wear the ones that have stayed in the agreement and we bonded greatly but russia has not unfortunately founded the agreement so we're going to terminate it we're going to allow. the kremlin has denied trumps allegations saying it has not produced any missiles that are prohibited by the i.n.f. treaty the prospect of a unilateral u.s. withdrawal has caused shock in moscow. the i.n.f. treaty was seen as a major breakthrough in nuclear security when it was ratified by former soviet president mikhail gorbachev and u.s. president ronald reagan in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven it came after a tense period of confrontation in the heart of europe. with very short flight times nuclear annihilation of european capitals was only five to fifteen minutes away trump has said the us will start developing these capabilities again if russia and china don't agree to stop have to develop those weapons unless russia comes to
3:03 pm
us and china comes to us and they all come to is that they say let's really get smart and let's none of us develop those weapons china is not a signatory of the pact and has been investing heavily in land based missiles now some observers fear it could be joined by russia and the u.s. in a new arms race. more of the story with leo hoffman from the i can't see international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons he joins us from brussels highly oh there's a lot of criticism of donald trump today but this is a claim complaint that we've heard repeatedly from washington that russia is violating this treaty can't the argument be made that this treaty wasn't really working. well that's the irony in this of course we've heard over the years various complaints but instead of forcing the agreement simply decided to pull out from the
3:04 pm
agreement and this is just the last piece in a long string of actions by the current u.s. administration to undermine stability which would really reminds us nuclear weapons have only been here for seventy years which is a very short amount of time in the thousands of years of warfare that humans have had so we really can't afford to wait for the bilateral agreements between these two countries but really pay attention also to what the rest of the states of the world are saying and the majority of the states on the world have just agreed to a new united nations treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons and this is the one piece of good news that we can use in order to try and make more sense of this risk of a new arms race all right so there is international movement on this issue which you see as it is a good thing leo but coming back to this treaty between the u.s. and russia you said that it essentially put in place a framework but it wasn't being implemented but what about china it's not part of the agreement essentially has been as critics have said been able to develop these missiles that well isn't that also something that has been lacking from this treaty
3:05 pm
. again i would want to and seeing the such a narrow pollo game between russia and the us or between russia and the u.s. and china now china has three hundred nuclear weapons whereas the us and russia have over nine thousand nuclear weapons between them so we really see the scale of nuclear. from these two countries would do all for anything that. would come as a threat from china and i think what we need to focus on is not just russia us china but what about europe europe is the continent where most nuclear weapons are stationed in the entire world and of course the reintroduction of medium range missiles with mainly us right to europe would make europe a target once again and the european nations really have to reconsider whether they want to be u.s. nuclear umbrella that they have to rely and to trust for all whether they want to take security into their own hands and you do have to wonder after everything that's happened in the last two years what else the united states has to do for
3:06 pm
europe to really take its security interests into their own hands after the. draw from the by the united states based on the argument asian whatsoever after the threats of mass murder against north korean civilians and then turn around to base . relations on a on an unenforceable agreement was very prestigious whatsoever and of course the. trump has introduced a new nuclear posture review which would allow your nuclear weapons to be used even in the case of attacks so i think the europeans really have to take this seriously and start defending their own security which just in the first step this means emancipating themselves from the nuclear policy which is currently set unilaterally by the united states all right i would rather wake up call for europe that. i can't thank you so much for joining us. thank you. now german chancellor angela merkel has backed
