WASHINGTON, Nov 7 (Reuters) – There was no way for the U.S. to stay in the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe, a key post-Cold War agreement, after Russia pulled out, White house national security spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday.
“I don’t know how we can justify not pulling out” of the treaty after Russia did, Kirby said. He said the U.S. will meet all Article Five commitments to NATO allies, which could force changes.
