MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s Security Council warned on Wednesday that the United States’ exit from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty could bring a return to Cold War-style confrontation between the powers, the Interfax news agency reported.

Security Council Deputy Secretary Alexander Venediktov called on the United States to enter talks to extend the New START nuclear treaty, which is due to expire in early 2021, Interfax reported.
