Putin met with senior officials from the defence ministry today to discuss the US’s possible withdrawal from a key nuclear weapons treaty.

Russia and the US have signed up to a number of accords since the Cold War designed to reign in their nuclear arsenals.

Stockpiles have been being reduced by both Moscow and Russia but there are now fears of a new arms race.

US officials are reportedly ready to withdraw from the 1987 Intermediate -Range Nuclear Forces treaty signed during the Cold War.

NATO and Russian envoy addressed the dispute during rare talks on October 31.
