2. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General:
“We reiterate our concern regarding the erosion of the US – Russia arms control regime. I think we can’t sress enough that this arms control regime has provided security benefits for the entire international community by constraining strategic arms competition.

STORYLINE:

Commenting on reports that the United States is planning to withdraw from the Open Skies treaty, a UN spokesperson today (21 May) expressed concern regarding the erosion of the US – Russia arms control regime and stressed that the treaty “has provided security benefits for the entire international community by constraining strategic arms competition."

Briefing reporters via video teleconference, Stephane Dujarric, who is the spokesperson for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said, “ending such agreements without anything to replace them could result in destabilizing activities such as a dangerous new arms race leading to possible miscalculations.”

The 1992 treaty established a regime of unarmed observation flights over the territories of State Parties. It specifies, inter alia, quotas for observation flights, the notification of points of entry, the technical details and inspection for sensors.
