Defence Committee

INF Treaty withdrawal inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Oral evidence sessions announced.

Scope of the inquiry

The Defence Committee launches inquiry examining the potential withdrawal of the US from the INF Treaty and its possible implications for UK defence.

The INF Treaty, signed in 1987, prohibits the US and Russia from testing and deploying ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles which have a range between 500 and 5500km. Last month, the President of the United States announced the intention of the US to withdraw from the Treaty. Given that this Treaty is predominantly aimed at securing Europe, the Defence Committee has decided to examine what the implications might be for UK defence of such a withdrawal.
