INF Sözleşmesinin Sonu: Yeni Bir Soğuk Savaş Dönemine mi Giriyoruz?

Şafak OĞUZ , Mehmet Seyfettin EROL

Abstract

This article analyzes possible consequences of the abolition of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, signed between the US and the USSR in 1987 and banning developing, testing and deploying intermediate-range missiles. The article argues that termination of the treaty would result in a conventional and especially a nuclear arms race as during the Cold War, and might trigger scrapping further agreements, although common sense in both parties enabled extending of the New START Treaty for 5 years. The new environment, with regional and global crises and massive armament by the global powers, including missile defense systems and hypersonic missiles, would endanger possible cooperation.

Keywords: Orta Menzilli Nükleer Kuvvetler Anlaşması, Nükleer Silahlar, Yeni START Sözleşmesi, Silahlanma Yarışı, Füze sistemleri.
