US President Donald Trump

The assessment came after US President Donald Trump on Monday said China's growing arsenal had played into his decision to pull out of the landmark Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which banned short and medium-range nuclear and conventional missiles.

Bolton said he believed Trump would look forward to it, adding that it was important for Moscow and Washington to work in areas where there was a possibility of mutual cooperation.

Shoigu said that dialogue was gradually being restored after a summit between Trump and Putin in Helsinki in May, and voiced confidence that "even small steps will benefit our relations".

Bolton said that formal notification of US withdrawal from the INF pact would be filed in "due course".

"It is the American position that Russian Federation is in violation, it is Russia's position that they're not in violation", Mr Bolton said. Without renewal, that treaty would expire in 2021.

"When they do, then we'll all stop".

"I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't"...sort of a double negative", Trump explained in July.

Bolton responded: "I didn't bring any more olives". On Monday morning, he met his Russian counterpart, Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told reporters Monday that it was "wrong" for the United States to cite China as a reason to pull out of the treaty, which he said was important for "maintaining global strategic balance and stability".
