Hope for new US-Russian disarmament deal

ImageHilary Clinton has indicated that there would be renewed commitment to negotiate a new nuclear arms reduction pact between Russia and the US.  Speaking in Geneva on 6 March she said:  "We intend to have an agreement by the end of the year. This is the highest priority to our governments".

 

There are now moves in the US and Russia to draw up a follow-on to the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START).  Officials will prepare work on this prior to the first meeting between Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the G20 summit in London on 2 April.  Hilary Clinton added:

"We hope to be in a position where we can present those to our two presidents before their meeting, so that they can then agree upon the instructions that should be provided to our negotiators".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said:

"We will do everything to have this agreement reached"

Russian President Dmitry Medvede said on 7 March:

"I fully share US Predident Barack Obama's commitment to the noble goal of sparing the world of the nuclear threat. Constructive interaction in this area would help make Russian-US relations healthier in general".
