In light of these facts, the United States today declares it has found Russia in material breach of the treaty, and we'll suspend our obligations as a remedy effective in 60 days unless Russia returns to full and verifiable compliance.
It won't come to a surprise as anyone what the United States is thinking, how we're approaching it. And we will look for their assistance, their help, their inputs and how to develop and a security architecture... an architecture that actually delivers. I mean, we, just to be clear, we had a party... a treaty... that had two parties, only one of which was compliant. That's not an agreement. That's just self-restraint. And it strategically no longer made sense to remain in that position. And we'll develop our course forward.
I don't want to say much about what the United States policy is going to be because there are lots of folks still to talk to. And I will also leave to the Department of Defense the nature and work that they're doing on systems that will ultimately, potentially be non-compliant.
