The US announced its intention on Thursday to withdraw from the 35-nation Open Skies treaty allowing unarmed surveillance flights over member countries, the Trump administration`s latest move to pull the United States from a major global treaty. The administration said Russia has repeatedly violated the pact`s terms. Senior officials said the pullout will formally take place in six months, based on the treaty`s withdrawal terms.
