The US Wants to Get Out of the Open Skies Treaty. The United States plans to withdraw from the 1992 Open Skies Convention.
In it, 35 countries have agreed that they can fly in mutual airspace with unarmed military reconnaissance aircraft.
According to some government officials, Washington wants to get out of the treaty because Russia would not comply with the conditions.
The departure must take shape in the next six months, depending on the conditions of cancellation in the treaty.
The Open Skies Treaty was concluded between NATO and the countries of the former Warsaw Pact.
By opening up the airspace to each other, conflicts must be prevented. It entered into force in 2002.
