Can Russia and America Avoid a New Nuclear Arms Race?
Delegations from the United States and Russia plan to meet in Geneva in mid-July 2019 to begin discussing a possible extension of the New START treaty, one of the major arms-control accords limiting the size and power and the U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals.The 2010 treaty restricts both the United States and Russia to 1,550 deployed strategic nuclear warheads on a maximum of 700 deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles and strategic bombers.But the treaty expires in 2021. And experts worry that the administration of U.S. president Donald Trump, in particular Trumps national security advisor John Bolton, plans to sabotage a possible extension in order to allow for unlimited atomic rearmament.Before the Group of 20 summit last month in Japan, Russian president Vladimir Putin said he planned to push Pres. Donald Trump for an extension to New START, The Associated Press reported. Putin said his nation was ready to agree to an extension, but that Russia had not seen any initiative from the Americans even though the treaty expires in 2021.Trumps national security team has dithered for more than a year on beginning talks with Russia to extend [New START] before it expires in February 2021, wrote Daryl Kimball, an expert with the Arms Control Association in the United States.It is now apparent that Bolton is trying to steer Trump to discard New START.There's no decision, but I think it's unlikely, Bolton said of New START in a June 2019 interview.More DescriptionImage URL
