Washington on Sunday officially withdrew from the Open Skies Treaty, an international agreement setting rules for aerial surveillance that the United States has accused Russia of violating.
The Trump administration gave advance notice in May that it would withdraw from the 1992 treaty, waiting six months before officially exiting the agreement. The agreement, which applied to the United States and 34 other member countries, provides a framework allowing states to fly reconnaissance aircraft over one another with mutual consent.
