Горбачев сравнил переговоры Путина и Трампа со своей встречей с Рейганом

The first President of the Soviet Union positively assessed the meeting between Putin and trump at the G20.

Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev said that the meeting of leaders of Russia and USA Vladimir Putin and Donald trump reminded him of beginning disarmament negotiations with the then US President Ronald Reagan, writes Globalist.

“A few days after the first personal contacts I was told that American warships entered the Black sea and approached the territorial waters of the USSR. I said, “What?”. I knew immediately that it was a provocation: someone in the Pentagon didn’t want this dialogue,” – said Gorbachev.

He also said that the handshake between Putin and trump is a positive signal.

“We cannot miss this opportunity. It will be difficult, but this meeting is very important, it can be a starting point to achieve the results that now seem unattainable,” said the ex-President of the USSR.

Gorbachev and Reagan during meetings in 1985-1987 in Geneva, Reykjavik and Washington discussed the issue of nuclear arms reduction. In the end, 8 December 1987, an Agreement was signed on the elimination of intermediate-range nuclear forces (INF), which under the reduction were missiles with range from 500 to 1000 and from 1000 to 5500 km.
