US exits ‘Open Skies’ defence treaty




WASHINGTON: The US said it formally left the Open Skies defence treaty on Sunday, one of several international agreements Washington has exited under President Donald Trump.

Open Skies was agreed just after the Cold War to allow signatories to avoid nasty surprises or unfounded suspicions by monitoring rival militaries. But Trump said in May that Moscow had not stuck to its commitments under the pact, which was designed to improve confidence between the superpowers.

"The US withdrawal took effect on November 22, 2020, and the United States is no longer a State Party to the Treaty on Open Skies," the US State Department said in a statement Sunday. The treaty was signed in 1992 and came into force in 2002, allowing 35 signatory countries, including the United States and Russia, to fly unarmed surveillance flights over each other's territory.

Moscow and Washington had often accused each other of breaching its terms, and in May the Trump administration said it gave the required six-month notice to leave the treaty.

The United States under Trump has also pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal as well as the Paris accord against climate change.

President-elect Joe Biden, who assumes the Oval Office in January, has vowed that the US would rejoin on his first day in the White House.

US is like a spoiled child lately, ever since things are not going their way.
As John Dalberg said "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely"

I bet the likes of CNN, BBC, CNBC, FOX, SKY and Al-Jazeera wouldn't ever bother to tell that america is forcing Europe to share all their intel, since Europe doesn't want to abandon the Open Skies treaty with Russia.

One thing is for certain, Russia will not permit any European flights, if the Europeans submit to the pathetic american demands.

The zionist owned slave state, that is america, is now showing its full true colors by abandoning one treaty after the next. This is a clear indication that the zionist owned slave states in the West (america, britain, france, netherlands, australia, canada, demark and etc) are being prepared to set the stage for a full blown, open war with Russia and China.

Anyone dumb or naive enough to think otherwise, ought to move residence to neverland ranch!

Hey tadpole .... watch your mouth and put a sock in it. Open Skies is but one of many treaties that America has abandoned, vis-a-vis Russia. Of course you'd know, if you weren't too busy comforting that pea-brain of yours. Now go color the map some more, like a good boy.

It's about time we leave surveillance treaties that others simply refuse to join. It serves us no purpose. Maybe you guys should volunteer to take our place instead. Let spies for Israel fly over your bases and radar map them...go ahead.

The Open Skies was a confidence building measure, where two countries with the largest nuclear arsenal than the entire world combined, was suppose to alleviate any fears of triggered Nuclear Armageddon. They had satellites back then as well, but the whole point was to build trust between the two nuclear powers. But you would know that, had you witnessed the Cuban Missile Crises. Guess you weren't born at the time, nor bothered studying the subject.

Let spies for Israel know where all your stuff is...go ahead.
That sniveling little illegal state has its days numbered.

You think China has less than Europe???? What silliness is going through your head? Are you serious? Why should the Russians fly over Europe? Shouldn't countries be flying over China instead???

Buddy, you really need to go read up on the NATO framework vis-a-vis Russia. And if you're smart enough, you ought to have read up on text of the Open Skies Treaty, before coming and rambling away with no filters. Get clued up first, then respond.

So Americans will regret and remember that Trump is the best.

If Trump is not the best president of USA and the biblical savior of the world, so no one will.

The EU and NATO are fully ware of the situation

Issued on 22 May. 2020
Statement by the NATO Secretary General on the Open Skies Treaty

"...Russia has for many years imposed flight restrictions inconsistent with the Treaty, including flight limitations over Kaliningrad, and restricting flights in Russia near its border with Georgia. Russia’s ongoing selective implementation of its obligations under the Open Skies Treaty has undermined the contribution of this important Treaty to security and stability in the Euro-Atlantic region.

Allies have called on Russia to return to full compliance of the Treaty since the Wales Summit in 2014, and repeated that call at the Warsaw Summit in 2016 and again at the Brussels Summit in 2018. The United States has declared Russia in violation of the Treaty, and has now announced its intention to withdraw from the Treaty in six months, consistent with Treaty provisions. The US has declared that it may, however, reconsider its withdrawal should Russia return to full compliance with the Treaty."
