MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Friday it would not follow "American diktat" over the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Treaty between the two countries.

The ministry said in a statement that the United States continues to follow a logic of confrontation in its dealings with Russia and referred to accusations made recently in the U.S. Congress that Russia had violated the missile treaty.
