France condemns the intention of Russian President Vladimir Putin to place nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus.

The corresponding statement was published on the website of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “Following Russia’s violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which led to its disappearance, and Russia’s announcement of the suspension of its participation in START-3 last February, this agreement represents an additional element of the erosion of the international architecture of arms control and strategic stability in Europe,” the statement said.

The Foreign Ministry called on Russia to demonstrate the responsibility expected from a nuclear-weapon state and revise the agreement with Belarus.
