Bolton says that between a third and a half of Chinese arsenal violates INF treaty



US National Security Adviser John Bolton said today that China violates the short and medium-range missile (INF) missile disposal treaty.

Between a third and a half of the Asian giant's nuclear arsenal violates the treaty signed in 1987 between the defunct USSR and the US, Bolton explained at a press conference in Moscow.

Bolton stressed that currently "there is a new strategic reality" that is not covered by the treaty dating from the Cold War and mentioned China and North Korea as new actors of that reality.
