Russia's ambassador to the United Nations said that by deploying nuclear tactical weapons in Belarus, Russia does not violate its obligations in the field of nuclear non-proliferation.

Iran PressAmerica: Russian President Vladimir Putin announced last Saturday that the country will deploy medium-range nuclear weapons in the country after an agreement with Belarus.

According to him, this decision does not violate the resolutions of the United Nations on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations, on Friday at the Security Council meeting on the issue of the deployment of nuclear weapons in Belarus, added: "Moscow will deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus without violating its international obligations on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons."

Russia and the US clashed in the United Nations on Friday over Moscow’s plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, which neighboring Ukraine denounced as a desperate Kremlin attempt to avoid military defeat and “threaten the world with nuclear apocalypse.”

China, without naming Russia, made clear its opposition to the planned deployment. 219
