Obama-Medvedev Reach Agreements at Moscow Summit
Russia is still a powerful
country and has enormous
natural resources including
oil and the US needs good
relations with them.
The United States and Russia have signed an agreement committing the two countries to sharply reduce the number of their strategic weapons and delivery vehicles.
The accord, signed by U.S. President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitri Medvedev at the their summit in Moscow, instructs negotiators to finalize an accord to replace the Strategic Arms limitation treaty that expires in December. The agreement provides for a reduction of warheads from 2200 to a range of 1500-1675 and of launch vehicles from 1600 to a range of 500 to 1100.
