The multilateralization of the FN Treaty, which was previously bilateral, required the establishment of agreements between the United States and the governments of the successor Soviet states concerned on many issues. Within the CSA and through diplomatic contacts with actively participating states of origin, the United States has worked to conclude agreements to ensure the continued viability of the contractual regime and to ensure the exercise of United States‘ rights under the Treaty. Among the tasks to be carried out were the provisions on the management of costs related to implementing measures in the new multilateral context of the Treaty; the establishment of new points of entry (POEs) in Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine, through which inspections can be carried out on the former INF facilities in these countries; and to establish communication links between the United States and those countries for the transmission of various contract-related notifications. Other topics discussed in the CFS include multilateral operating procedures for simultaneous continuous monitoring of the SVC, in accordance with the START I and INF treaties, as well as inspection procedures for new missiles that leave the Votkinsk machine factory in Russia. On Friday, the United States will withdraw from a Cold War-era agreement, the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces (SNSF) treaty, which banned Washington and Moscow from using certain types of missiles. The end of the treaty could trigger a new nuclear arms race. Negotiations on the INF Treaty showed progress when Mikhail Gorbachev became Soviet General Secretary in March 1985. In the autumn of the same year, the Soviet Union presented a plan to strike a balance between the number of SS-20 warheads and the growing number of medium-range Allied warheads in Europe. The United States expressed interest in the Soviet proposal and the scope of the negotiations was extended to all the United States in 1986. and Soviet medium-range missiles worldwide. With the momentum of these talks, President Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev began to move toward a comprehensive agreement to eliminate medium-range missiles. Their efforts culminated in the signing of the FN Treaty on 8 December 1987, and the Treaty entered into force on 1 June 1988. .
