“The NATO Allies have expressed their deep disappointment and concern about Russia’s unilateral decision to suspend obligations under the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty, in a press release on 16 July,” it began.

“The Allies remain firmly committed to the Treaty and hope Russia will engage in constructive and creative dialogue to ensure its continued operation.”
