The New START Treaty is a triumph of reasoned and principled discourse, and a reflection of the seriousness of the Senate’s commitment to the security of the American people.
The New START Treaty helps to establish a transparent, predictable and stable relationship between the US and Russia—the countries that collectively hold 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons. The ratification of this treaty creates momentum for more powerful global action on key security threats such as Iran, North Korea and other nuclear proliferation challenges.
This is major step towards more effective action against 21st century threats.
