"Our main focus now is to preserve the treaty and there is a window of opportunity for Russian Federation to come back into compliance", Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said before a meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels on Wednesday.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg acknowledged on Tuesday that a Cold War-era nuclear treaty between the USA and Russian Federation may be in its final days.

On Feb. 2, Washington launched the six-month process for leaving the INF, insisting that a new Russian Federation missile system breaks the pact's range requirements.

Ex-'American Idol' contestant tried delivering 2 lbs. fentanyl
The indictment alleges Barba was delivering about 830 grams of fentanyl when she was arrested the morning of October 11, 2018. The new charges could result in even more hard time, with each count carrying a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The collapse of the 1987 treaty, which banned ground-launched missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometres, has sparked fears of a new arms race in Europe.

Stoltenberg said that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has "a wide range of options, conventional and other options", but he declined to list them, warning that any speculation "would just add to the uncertainty".

German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen said a "broad mix of measures" was being considered, and unexpectedly - given Berlin's softly-softly approach on the INF issue - she refused to rule out the deployment of nuclear missiles.

The U.S. doesn't have immediate plans to deploy new missiles to Europe when the withdrawal takes effect in August, according to two administration officials involved in the deliberations who briefed reporters last week on condition of anonymity.

"I mean that it's not just about purely military issues, but also about economic issues, about political issues".

"Moscow continues to develop and deploy several battalions of the SSC-8 missile", Mr Stoltenberg said.

The top USA envoy to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said Washington was open to a broad treaty with Russian Federation to curb the proliferation of nuclear weapons while also warning Turkey not to purchase a new arms system from Moscow.

"They are deploying more and more of the new nuclear capable missiles in Europe". It claims that US target-practice missiles and drones also break the treaty.
