The Russian Foreign Ministry says the so-called nuclear missions practiced by the U-S and NATO are against the treaty. It urged the US to return all its nuclear weapons, ban placing nuclear weapons abroad and stop conducting nuclear exercises. In April, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the White House breaches the N-P-T by placing its tactical nuclear weapons in certain countries. The treaty went into force in 19-70 to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. However, it’s promoted the use of civilian nuclear technology. Over 190 countries are members of the treaty.
