Russia and the U.S. Agree on Weapons

President Barack Obama and Russian President Dimitri Medvedev agreed the outlines of a deal to reduce their strategic nuclear warheads to 1,500-1,675 within seven years of a new treaty coming into force. The sides want to make a deal before the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) expires on Dec. 5. Both sides are already committed to reducing their arsenals to between 1,700 and 2,200 warheads under the separate Moscow Treaty (SORT) that runs until 2012.

U.S. - Russian Partnership

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says the possibility of a U.S.-Russian partnership on missile defense have improved because Moscow is becoming more concerned about Iran. The defense secretary told senators Tuesday that U.S. offers to put radar or data exchange centers in Russia are among the options being discussed. Russian and U.S. officials are working intensively on a successor deal to the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START I, which expires in December. Negotiators are aiming for some results by the time Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hosts President Barack Obama July 6-8 in Moscow.
