Negotiations Are Over; US And Russia In New Nuclear Policy

March 26, 2010

(ChattahB0x) – US President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev have finalized the terms of a nuclear negotiation between the two nations, which will see a reduction in arms.

The new treaty will replace the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, and will limit the amount each country can have in their armories to 1,550 warheads.

It is hoped that the agreement will be the first step towards further reductions in nuclear weaponry, and that the US and Russia can provide an example to be followed.

“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,” President Obama said of the deal.

“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.”

This is the first real diplomatic win for Obama, as this is the first finalized nuclear agreement for reduction since 1991, and offers proof of his commitment towards a nuclear-free world.
