Russia and the United States will not require verification of Topol-M missile Bulava and other manufacturers
data for: Russia’s newest ballistic missile Topol-M strategic
Song China Global Times special correspondent reports, according to Russian newspaper “Independent” reported that the U.S. media quoted the White House December 2 sources as saying that Washington may in the reduction of offensive strategic arms treaty negotiations to make major concessions to Moscow, the U.S. will no longer insist on Russia to send experts to the production of “Topol-M”, “Bulava” and RS-24 intercontinental ballistic missiles Watkin Intrinsic plant verification, for which Obama has been criticism of the domestic political opponents.
According to the U.S. Republican Party sources, in October this year, the White House and the Kremlin seems to have Russia on the withdrawal of inspectors from the United States reached a secret agreement. Geneva on the current U.S. and Russia are still negotiating a new treaty, but Russia Fang Youli time now, because Obama will visit Europe next week, get ideas for nuclear-free world and get the Nobel Peace Prize. If the White House and the Kremlin can not be promptly signed a new strategic arms reduction treaty, the U.S. president will again be questioned. U.S. negotiators are likely to make concessions detrimental to U.S. national interests, the first carrier in the number of nuclear weapons and nuclear facilities inspection.
has been to defend the interests of the American conservative Republican media “Weekly Standard,” December 2, public criticism of Obama to make major concessions to Russia, accusing the Russian and U.S. strategic offensive arms reduction treaty negotiations and the new sign problem opaque.
“Weekly Standard,” warning that, when President Reagan and former Soviet Union signed the “first phase of reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms treaty”, the United States in strategic weapons occupy a distinct advantage, both in strategic bombers, nuclear submarines, intercontinental ballistic missiles or. But now has become the dominant position of Russia. Relevant reports that: “Russia now has an advantage, they do not just ‘Topol-M’ into a new missile missile improved RS-24, is building a new generation of nuclear submarines capable of carrying nuclear weapons, they are also prepared annually in the next 15 years, the construction of two additional Rack ‘White Swan’ (Tu-160) strategic bombers, to improve the expiration of the time Russia will have more than 200 strategic bombers, while the U.S. is now only enough to protect its airspace from 9-11 style terrorist attack threat fighter If they braved the wrath open to us, we will not be engaged and defeated the bombers. “
” Washington Times “had disclosed that the reduction of offensive strategic arms treaty will not require Russia to allow American observers regularly enter the Russian major missile manufacturing plants, such as in the Udmurt City Votkinsk machine factory for verification. Prior to December 5, United States, the verification team of experts will remove all the equipment, leaving Russian missile factories.
expiring according to the “first stage of the reduction and limitation of strategic offensive arms treaty” requirement, enjoy the diplomatic immunity of U.S. inspectors have been in the Russian missile factories from strict supervision of factory products . U.S. experts have been checked twice a day walking around the factory, said to the United States during the verification experts around the plant in check only when the distance already traveled over the length of the equator.
end the United States Senate Republican factions came the voice of some of the criticisms and concerns, such as “When we lose the supervision of Votkinsk, Russia may expand production of hundreds of missiles”, “over Russia There are many satellites fly, so count the number of its missile tests will not be easy, “” We are worried that Russia will make the things we know nothing. ”
but the U.S. Arms Control Association Executive Director Jim Bell, even in the absence of the regular verification of U.S. observers, Washington is fully capable of Russia in the end find out the number of strategic missiles production, mainly through regular inspection, exchange of data and intelligence information gathering, especially focus on monitoring the number of Russian missile launch.
criticism against political opponents, the U.S. Democratic Party spokesman pointed out that their former Republican President George W. Bush in the strategic arms negotiations, the government’s stance on the issue expressed disappointment at that time both Russia and the U.S. withdrawal of inspectors in the United States Walter Jin Sike factory secret deal on the issue expressed shock, because the Bush administration did not want to extend the period or the old treaty negotiated and signed new treaties, in addition to the Obama administration negotiated compromise with Russia had no choice.
military and diplomatic sources in Moscow December 2 to the Russian media, Russia and the U.S. to reduce strategic offensive arms treaty will require relatively little additional cost monitoring mechanism to replace the current, complex, multi-level inspection procedures. The source said: “The inspectors from the United States of Votkinsk plant of (unilateral) formed around the clock monitoring the situation can not be considered equal, so then its inclusion in the new treaty is clearly inappropriate. Russian inspectors back in about eight years ago left the U.S. missile facility in Utah, because the plant no longer produces missiles, Russia no supervision. “
Russian experts say American withdrawal Votkinsk factory is “a major diplomatic success of Russia”, while Americans are already familiar with the plant’s capacity, experts believe that after the withdrawal of the plant in the United States is not likely to increase the production scale, but Russia is not the removal of the obligation itself, such as verification has obvious political significance, both sides are convinced that their will to comply with its obligations. At the same time it will show that Russia, U.S. not to each other as their enemy and preparing for the potential, the size of their strategic nuclear arsenals might be to determine their own political weight in the international arena of weight.
