Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill, member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on the decision to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty:

"I served as a Russian policy officer in the U.S. Navy and worked to implement our nuclear agreements with the Russian Federation. I can tell you bluntly that the decision announced by the administration today is wrong-headed, and does not make our country safer," said Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill. “Since the Cold War, the United States has worked alongside our closest allies to limit nuclear weapons in our world, and this decision reverses thirty years of work started under President Reagan towards nuclear non-proliferation."
