Russia says Open Skies nations to meet July 6 over U.S. exit -RIA

MOSCOW, June 17 (Reuters) - Participants in the Open Skies treaty will hold a conference on July 6 in light of the planned exit of the United States, Russia’s RIA news agency reported the foreign ministry as saying on Wednesday.

Last month the United States announced its intention to withdraw from the treaty which permits unarmed surveillance flights over member countries in the Trump administration’s latest move to pull the country out of major global agreements.
