the Decision on the U.S. withdrawal from the Treaty on open skies enters into force in six months. This was stated by U.S. Secretary of state Michael Pompeo.
Tomorrow, the U.S. will formally submit its intent to withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty. The Treaty was meant to contribute to international security. Russia’s approach to the Treaty fatally undermined it as a confidence & transparency-building measure. https://t.co/7ZKiYxeMpF

“six months, starting tomorrow, the United States will no longer be a party to the Treaty,” said Pompeo, adding that the decision may be reconsidered “if Russia will return to full compliance with the Treaty”.
According to Pompeo, “implementation and Russia’s violation of the Treaty contributed to the growth of mistrust and threats to national security, making the further participation of the United States is unacceptable”.
earlier, media reported about the intention of Washington to withdraw from the Treaty on open skies, allegedly due to repeated violations of the terms of the agreements with Russia. Then this information was confirmed by the leader of the United States Donald trump. The agreement on open skies was signed in 1992. It was attended by 34 States. In recent years, the United States and Russia has repeatedly accused each other of violating the agreement.
