In a world of growing mistrust and uncertainty over military intentions, the Open Skies Treaty provides transparency across the Euro-Atlantic between Vancouver and Vladivostok.And yet, on May 21, 2020 President Trump declared that the U.S. would withdraw from this treaty. Which consequences would a possible U.S. withdrawal have? How can remaining parties act now? And what are options to ensure continued treaty implementation - especially with regard to the official conference of the States Parties?
The authors of the latest trilateral U.S.-Russian-German Issue Brief by the Deep Cuts Project will address these and further questions in this Zoom briefing and Q&A.
Discussants are Alexandra Bell, Colonel (ret) Wolfgang Richter and Andrei Zagorski. Moderated by Oliver Meier.
