November 1981: Negotiations on the Intermediate Range Nuclear Force (INF) between the United States and the Soviet Union began on November 30, 1981 in Geneva. The United States has officially presented its zero zero proposal. On February 1, the Trump administration officially announced its suspension of compliance with the INF and its intention to withdraw from the treaty on August 2 in six months. In exchange, Russia suspended compliance with the treaty on February 2. During this six-month period, the two countries remain parties to the treaty, although talks between the two countries remain controversial and negotiations appear to be at a standstill. For emergency response, the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics have agreed to establish a direct communication link between the two Governments as soon as possible.

Together with the Basic Principles Agreement and the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT), this was an attempt to establish “rules” for competition from superpowers during the Cold War. The bilateral agreement with multilateral effects describes the general behaviour of the two countries and towards third world countries. The parties agreed that, in a situation that threatened to develop into direct nuclear confrontation, either directly or through the in-between deputies in the Third World, there was an urgent need to consult with each other.
