Adam Thomson on US-Russia confrontation

ELN Director, Sir Adam Thomson, quoted in The Telegraph on the implications of the demise of the INF Treaty on US-Russia relations, and the potential for nuclear confrontation.

Sir Adam Thomson, one of Britain’s leading arms control experts, believes the death of the INF deal could prove to be a watershed moment in relations between Russia and the West. “It reflects a dangerous loss of trust between Moscow and Washington. Neither side can afford a nuclear confrontation when the margin for error is so small.”
