Obama And Medvedev Will Sign New Nuclear Arms Treaty On April 8

10:25

March 26, 2010


By Mark Memmott

President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will meet in Prague on April 8 "to sign the Treaty between the United States of America and the Russian Federation on Measures to Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (the 'New START Treaty')," the White House just confirmed.

In a statement e-mailed to reporters about a phone call the two leaders had this morning, the White House said:

"This landmark agreement advances the security of both nations, and reaffirms American and Russian leadership on behalf of nuclear security and global non-proliferation. This was the 14th direct meeting or phone call between the presidents addressing New START, and represents their shared commitment to 'reset' U.S.-Russia relations so that we cooperate substantively and effectively on issues of mutual interest along many dimensions."

As has been previously reported, the new treaty would "limit both sides to 1,550 nuclear warheads."

The White House says there is "a separate limit of 700 deployed ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles), deployed SLBMs (submarine launched ballistic missiles), and deployed heavy bombers equipped for nuclear armaments.

Update at 10:53 a.m. ET: Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton just told reporters at the White House that "this is a good day for America and our security." And, she said, the treaty is a "significant step forward" in U.S.-Russian relations.

Update at 10:51 a.m. ET. President Obama continues to talk about the treaty. He just said:

"Broadly speaking, the new START Treaty makes progress in several areas. It cuts -- by about a third -- the nuclear weapons that the United States and Russia will deploy. It significantly reduces missiles and launchers. It puts in place a strong and effective verification regime. And it maintains the flexibility that we need to protect and advance our national security, and to guarantee our unwavering commitment to the security of our allies.

"With this agreement, the United States and Russia -- the two largest nuclear powers in the world -- also send a clear signal that we intend to lead. By upholding our own commitments under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty, we strengthen our global efforts to stop the spread of these weapons, and to ensure that other nations meet their own responsibilities."

Update at 10:50 a.m. ET: Obama is talking about the agreement at the White House. He just said:

"When the United States and Russia can cooperate effectively, it advances the mutual interests of our two nations, and the security and prosperity of the wider world. ... Today, we have taken another step forward in leaving behind the legacy of the 20th century while building a more secure future for our children. We have turned words into action."
