Mattis on the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty: Russia is "now standing up multiple units that are armed with a weapon that is clearly a violationWe have done everything we can I think diplomatically, the diplomats are still trying"
SecDef Mattis says US calling Russia to support the Geneva Process on Syria it's eventually in Russia's best interest to not keep Syria the "cauldron of violence that it is now"
Mattis declines to say what US will deploy in response to INF Treaty collapse. "That's a grave decision that the president will take council from all of us – and it will be up to President Trump. His views on nuclear weapons I think are pretty well known, that he hates them."
