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.

NATO and Russia make a breakthrough

Reuters reports the breakthrough would allow three documents on NATO-Russia cooperation to be signed on Friday at the first formal ministerial meeting between the two sides since ties were frozen after Russia's brief war with Georgia last year.
