US Permanent Representative for Disarmament: Extension of START is just the beginning of cooperation with Russia

47

The re-conclusion of the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (START) between the United States and the Russian Federation on the initiative of Joe Biden is in the state interests of the United States. The START extension is just the beginning of America's cooperation with Russia.


The statement was made by the Permanent Representative of the United States for Disarmament Affairs, Robert Wood, at a virtual meeting in Geneva on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

President Biden has made it clear that New START is in the United States' national security interests. This extension makes even more sense when relations with Russia are not at their best.

Wood said.

During the Geneva disarmament meeting, he also described the renewed agreement as the beginning, not the end, of efforts by the United States and its allies to strengthen engagement with Russia.

The draft law on the renewed START treaty has already been submitted by the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, to the State Duma of the Russian Federation for ratification. The agreement was extended for the maximum possible five-year period without any additional conditions.

    Isn't this an agreement originally concluded by the traitor and Judas Mishka the Marked? Not a contract with a party that does not fulfill their contracts? Doesn't destroy warheads, but stores them in warehouses?

            SALT were limitation treaties, strategic offensive arms - on reduction.

              We have fewer warheads than START III.

                There is no need to rush into enthusiasm for American statements; no extensions of the contract for 5 years can be accepted.
                Did the head of state say - 1 (one) year?
                Here is one year, and no more.
                And a year later - only new negotiations on a possible (!) NEW treaty, taking into account the unreliability of the United States as a contracting party - a party that does not keep its word and break the treaty at its discretion.
                Today we really have less warheads on strategic carriers than is allowed by the treaty, but objectively this number is not enough for us. Even in case of war with the United States.
                FEW !
                And if we take into account the US allies in NATO and not only (the same Japan), then the figure for our needs is at least halved.
                And no dreams of "conventional containment" in our case can be considered sane and sane. This is the inflamed delirium of foreign agents or insane.
                So - 1 year and ... that's it.
                And they will have to fix a lot this year.
                yes
                Well, if not request , we are not to blame.
                bully
                only in this vein should there be a conversation on this topic.

                  Already adopted and ratified for 5 years. In the US, it is not clear when it will be ratified and whether it will be done. In the current situation, they dictate the terms.

                      In this case, we were lucky that Biden was interested in extending START, but they still need to ratify it, which is not a fact.

        Is it possible that the Kremlin wants to step on the rake of the "world brotherhood" again?

          Most likely, I don't know much about "contracts", but my question is:
          Why were they in such a hurry to ratify?

          Russia ratifies, but the US does not. Biden will say: I’m for all the good, but Congress has questions ... and then the Senate has questions.
          And ... it got stuck, and Russia signed and ratified everything.
          What to do?

            To the point, and also begs, like Volodin today said with undisguised pride that this is a victory of our Foreign Ministry and government. Question: what did they do for this to sing such songs of praise ?! Biden just steers a couple of days and made this decision. And ours have already opened the champagne and probably are going to hand out medals.

              "Fear the Danes who bring gifts ..." Biden's sweet beginning does not mean at all that THEY have become Russophiles and supporters of an adequate policy. And they should always be feared.
              But it is necessary to conclude an agreement, of course. On equal basis.

    is in the public interest of the United States. START Extension Is Just The Beginning Of America's Cooperation With Russia

    1. Exactly - corresponds to the US state interests. The US is lagging behind in this area and it needs to slow down Russia, otherwise the gap will widen.
    2. There is no need for illusions - there will be no cooperation. Sanctions will only intensify - this is obvious: the United States is not spending a single cent, Russia is suffering multibillion losses.

    The START extension is just the beginning of America's cooperation with Russia.
    It seems like good and correct words, but they absolutely do not inspire confidence. Against the background of the media hype about the extension of the agreement without conditions, active work is underway to introduce new sanctions, demands to release Navalny (there are no problems in the United States), and Europe, led by German provocateurs, is actively promoting this. The contract will be extended and all "cooperation" will stop there.

    Expert!!!! Was the contract concluded in 2010? When did Bear Marked leave the political arena?
    Further, do you really think that if the Americans had not destroyed their warheads, they would have entered into a treaty? Precisely because they destroyed their BGs, they found themselves in a situation that they could not do new BGs yet, and the old ones practically did not remain. Now they are not able, for example, to deploy 6 new ICBMs instead of Minutemans, especially if they have 400-4 battlegrounds. They JUST have no BG on them. And this happened because they OBSERVE strategic agreements ...

    They will not be able to make up for it in 5 years. the competence for the production of new modern nuclear warheads has been completely lost and it is necessary to start almost from scratch. And for the next 5 years, the current restrictions on the number do not interfere with us and will allow us to carry out the rearmament to the end with modern complexes, incl. Sarmat and Vanguard, well, Poseidon will go into series by this time, and maybe we will also see Barguzin in the ranks. incl. if the US does not blunt, trying to add something else there, the agreement will be extended. Bidet will go to celebrate the peremog, and we will go further to rearm the Strategic Missile Forces.  laughing

    There is such a common expression - LEARN MATCH... This also applies to you. The contract ends 5 FEBRUARY 2021. Today 27th of January 2021 With logic you seem to be full of seams. If 10 days before the expiration date of the contract, it is no longer valid for you. It even turns out that the Americans got out of it ...

    US Permanent Representative for Disarmament: Extension of START is just the beginning of cooperation with Russia

    START is needed both by us and by the United States, and by the whole world. And about the beginning of cooperation, I think that the permanent representative of the United States hangs noodles on the ears hurried
