US test-fires previously banned cruise missile after exiting INF treaty
United States has tested a medium-range ground launched cruise missile, just weeks after tearing up the Cold War-era pact with Russia that eliminated such nuclear-capable weapons.
The missile was launched from the US Navy-controlled San Nicolas Island off the coast of Los Angeles, California.
Reacting to that, Russia has said the US test of ground-launched cruise missile is regrettable and showed that Washington had long been preparing for the demise of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.
