Washington believes Moscow is developing a ground-launched system in breach of the INF treaty that could allow Moscow to launch a nuclear strike on Europe at short notice.

Russia, for its part, has repeatedly denied the USA accusations, and also has alleged that some elements of the US missile-defense systems in Europe are in violation of the agreement.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday thanked Turkey for its efforts in the northwestern Idlib province of Syria.

"We have run ahead of the competition".

"There were more opportunities in one great, united, powerful state", he said.

Speaking in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, Putin said the hostages included several U.S. and European nationals, adding that Islamic State was expanding its control in territory on the left bank of the River Euphrates controlled by USA and US-backed forces. The Avangard hypersonic missile, which boasts "a glider manoeuvring warhead" was shown in a video clip in July. The U.S. State Department later said Moscow had begun deploying the missile.

He will stop in Moscow first as tensions continue to grow with Russia over war in Syria, Ukraine and alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections.

President Donald Trump has been moving toward scrapping the 30-year-old treaty, which grew out of President Ronald Reagan's historic meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986. He thinks Trump wants "some sort of stabilization and improvement of U.S".

The Islamist terrorists have already murdered a number of hostages and warned that they will perform daily executions, the Russian president has said.

At the same time, the Russian president sharply criticized Washington's reliance on sanctions against Russia and others, saying the instrument of punishment "undermines trust in the dollar as a universal payment instrument and the main reserve currency".

Putin said SIS leaders had made demands but didn't say what they were. "An empire always thinks that it's so powerful that it can afford some mistakes and extra costs".

More than 500,000 people have been killed in the seven-year-long war, mostly at the regime's hands.

"Not in every country are people so eager to sacrifice their lives for the Motherland", he said.
