The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF Treaty for short, called for the United States and the Soviet Union to eliminate all nuclear-armed ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles that could travel between 300-3400 miles. It also called for them to abandon all methods of maintaining and developing these missiles. This treaty decreased the number of nuclear weapons. It was signed by the Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev on December 8 1987 and President Ronald Reagan on January 15 1988.

This treaty signed by Ronald Reagan, is seen as a landmark Cold War agreement that helped to both bring Congress and the Presidency into a unification.[Citation Needed]
