Russian Federation would be prepared to consider new proposals from the United States to replace a suspended Cold War-era nuclear pact with a broader treaty that includes more countries, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday.

Russia is open for a constructive dialogue with the United States if Washington revisits its destructive position on the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty), Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said at a news conference on Thursday. It confirmed that the missile successfully reached its target, a practice range in the country's far east.

The U.S. decision to withdraw from the INF treaty after accusing Russian Federation of violating the pact, has fueled growing tensions between Washington and Moscow, and raised the threat of a renewed missile build-up in Europe.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he would like to hold talks aimed at creating a new arms control treaty. Undersecretary for Defense Policy John Rood also said Wednesday there were no plans for such a deployment. The treaty remained in place after the Soviet Union's collapse, but the Trump administration and NATO have argued that Moscow has violated the agreement's terms.

But NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that intelligence gathered by many nations has shown Russia's violations, Reuters reported.

Ryabkov also said Russian Federation stands ready for talks on a possible successor to the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty.

"If the U.S.is interested, it should spell out its proposal".

"As soon as our USA colleagues are ready to hand over to us something like this in practical terms, we will certainly consider this with interest and I hope in a positive way", Ryabkov said.
