Riots on a carnival in Venezuela
The French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with an initiative to reform the EU law and political institutions. In particular, he proposed to make a European Security Council. The UK should be in that Council, according to his opinion. The Security Council will “prepare collective decisions of the EU in the defense matters”. The French president believes that the Council’s activities should be based on the “defense and security treaty” which defines the responsibilities of EU countries, based on their relations with the NATO — TASS reports with a reference to the Agence France-Presse. According to Macron — the commitments will be based on the increased military budget. The treaty will also include mutual assistance in defense in case of an invasion.

If the American missiles will be deployed in Europe — Russia will have to redeploy missiles as well, so they can reach all of Europe — the Russian ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, announced. He noted that Moscow is very concerned that after the US leave the INF treaty, the American missiles could be deployed in Europe — RIA NEWS reports. The INF treaty, the diplomat explained, doesn’t even concern the security of the US territory. The losers in this case will be the European countries. The US State Department, while commenting on the signing by the Russian President Vladimir Putin a decree on the suspension of the Russian fulfillment of the INF treaty, announced that the USA are ready for the negotiations with Russia on the matter of arms control, but with conditions. The State Department spokesman clarified that Washington “remains committed to the effective arms control. It contributes to the security of the US and the allies and partners. It is verifiable, and it is mandatory. It also includes the US partners that properly fulfill their obligations as well”
