NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg cautioned Tuesday the military alliance will respond to "more Russian missiles" following the collapse of a key Cold War-era arms treaty but will not deploy more nuclear missiles in Europe.
Stoltenberg called on Russia to return to compliance with the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, which the alliance insists Russia violated by developing a new missile system Moscow calls Novator 9M729.
The U.S. began the six-month process of withdrawing from the treaty on Feb. 2, claiming Russia's missile system violates the treaty's range requirements. The U.S. believes Russia's new missile system could enable Moscow to launch a nuclear attack in Europe with little or no warning.
