This bilateral mechanism of control is vital for maintaining strategic stability and international security.
Russia's Foreign Affairs Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Wednesday announced that her country and the United States extended the term of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) until 2026.
The final version of the new START agreement was reached as of Jan. 26th. Three days later, it was ratified by the Russian Federation.
Zakharova pointed out that the understanding reached with President Joe Biden's administration would make it possible to leave behind the "destructive" policy applied in recent years by the U.S. towards arms control and non-proliferation matters.
Russia urged the U.S. to respond constructively to its disarmament initiatives and showed its readiness to cooperate in topics such as limitations on intermediate-range nuclear forces.
