WASHINGTON—Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement regarding today’s announcement that the U.S. will withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty:

“Russia has continued its bad behavior by deploying prohibited weapons systems in blatant violation of the INF treaty. We cannot wish our way to deterrence, and withdrawing from the INF—with the full support of our NATO allies—is the right policy.”
