France calls on Russia to comply with nuclear treaty

 PARIS - The French government called on Russia on Friday to use the six-month period triggered by the United States's decision to withdraw from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) to comply with its obligations under the landmark accord.
The French Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it regretted the U.S. decision to quit the treaty in six months unless Moscow ends its alleged violations of the 1987 arms control agreement.
The ministry added that France will encourage dialog with Russia during the six-month period and consult with NATO alliance partners.
