Back in Business

Kyrgyzstan and the U.S. have a new deal to allow the U.S. to continue using a Kyrgyz air base to ship military supplies to Afghanistan. The Associated Press reports, the agreement, an abrupt about-face four months after Kyrgyzstan ordered American forces out by August, won unanimous parliamentary approval last Thursday. If the deal is finalized, the U.S. will pay $60 million dollars a year to use the base, more that three times the previous rent.

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.
