      Stoltenberg: No new nuclear arms in Europe despite Russian treaty breach

      NATO allies are not likely to deploy more nuclear weapons in Europe in response to what the West says is a Russian breach of a nuclear arms control treaty that Washington is pulling out of, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday. Washington will press ahead with a plan to quit a landmark nuclear arms control pact despite objections from Russia and some European countries, senior US official John Bolton said on Tuesday, after meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin.
