By Around the Web

(Sky News) The US will suspend a landmark Cold War-era nuclear arms control treaty with Russia, secretary of state Mike Pompeo has announced.

Mr Pompeo said he will suspend its compliance with the treaty on Saturday and the US could pull out formally in six months – but gave Russia a final chance to save the deal.

He said Russia was in breach of the treaty “to this day”.

“Countries must be held accountable for their actions,” he added.
