MOSCOW (Reuters) – Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, a co-signatory of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, said on Sunday U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to quit the treaty was a mistake, Interfax news agency reported.

“Under no circumstances should we tear up old disarmament agreements. … Do they really not understand in Washington what this could lead to?,” the news agency quoted Gorbachev as saying.

“Quitting the INF is a mistake.”

Mikhail Gorbachev, the former president of the Soviet Union, criticised President Donald Trump’s threat to withdraw from an international nuclear disarmament treaty, saying the move “is not the work of a great mind.”
