Putin proposes one-year extension of New START treaty

Russia denies New START 'gentleman's agreement' with US

The United States is open to the possibility of an extension of the New START nuclear arms control treaty beyond its expiration based on understandings reached in recent negotiations with Russian Federation.

These were the details of the news Putin proposes Russia, US extend New START arms control treaty for one year for this day.

US National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien has stated that the White House views Putin's offer of a one-year extension of the New START Treaty without any preconditions as a "non-starter".

"I have a proposal, namely, to extend the current Treaty without any conditions for at least a year in order to be able to conduct meaningful negotiations on all issues that are governed by agreements of this kind", Putin said at a meeting with permanent members of the country's Security Council.

Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier Friday said he could accept a short-term extension of the treaty, but only if it were without conditions.

When it comes to the extension of the last nuclear treaty between the US and Russian Federation, it depends on whom you ask.

Last month Billingslea threatened Russia that the Trump administration could increase the cost of extending New START - by "including a lot of the other bad behavior that the Russians are engaged in around the world" in the nuclear negotiations - if Moscow does not commit to meeting USA demands before the American presidential election.

New START limits each country to 1,550 deployed nuclear warheads and 700 deployed missiles and bombers and includes site inspections to verify compliance. This last remaining nuclear arms control treaty in force between the two nuclear superpowers will expire on February 5, 2021.

The Defense Intelligence Agency a year ago projected that Russia's overall stockpile of nuclear weapons would "grow significantly" over the next decade, driven by an increase in shorter-range, or non-strategic, weapons that are not governed by the New START treaty.

Arozarena pulled the Rays to 3-2 with an opposite-field shot to right-center off Enoli Paredes with one out in the fifth. Tampa Bay made things very interesting with a run in the ninth and ended the game with the tying run on third.

Democrat Joe Biden, who was vice president when New START was negotiated during the Obama administration and ratified by the Senate, has said he would not hesitate to agree to Putin's original proposal for a five-year extension of New START.

The Trump administration's talk of a cap, or freeze, on all categories of warheads has puzzled some US analysts, in part because the number of those weapons has held steady over the past decade or so.

Putin's statement comes amid conflicting signals from Russian and USA diplomats about the fate of the pact.

The top United States negotiator, Marshall Billingslea, suggested in a tweet later Friday that talks between the two countries were over.

Moscow has never agreed to any of these preconditions, but this did not stop the United States negotiator, Marshall Billingslea, from declaring that the sides had reached "an agreement in principle" earlier this week, while rolling out another demand.

Lavrov's pessimistic view contrasted with statements from US diplomats, who said that Moscow and Washington were close to a deal.

In Washington, Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, said in an interview that he hopes Trump accepts Putins offer of a short-term treaty extension without conditions, given the approaching expiration of New START in early February. "We think both sides would be smart to extend New START without conditions for five years".

Just a few hours later, O'Brien issued a written statement regretting Moscow's position and touting the US approach, which he said "would have been a win for both sides".
